COACH CAMERON FULLERTON
My name is Cameron Fullerton and I am the Assistant Cross Country coach at Rapid City Stevens High School. I have coached at Stevens for 5 years and am also an alumnus of the Stevens Runnin’ Raiders program.
Running is my passion!
Family & Background.
Last fall, my wife Laura and I got married. We were childhood sweethearts who met again in later life and finally tied the knot. We both grew up in the Black Hills and decided to move back to set life-long roots.
I have two older brothers (Chris and Nick) that live in Colorado. Both were large influences on my background in sports. Chris got me into wrestling and Nick got me into running.
I have a business with my parents in Keystone and get to spend every day in the summer with them!
Thing I Do:
My hobbies consist of anything outdoors. Golfing, camping, fishing, water skiing, snow skiing, mountain biking, road biking, dirt biking, etc., etc. If it gets me outside, I probably like it!
Growing up, I played all sports but was not very good! In high school, I decided to focus my energy on only a couple sports to increase my odds of finding something I could excel at.
I ran cross country, wrestled and ran track for Stevens from 2003-2007. I was fortunate enough to run under Forry Flaagan and Doc Michel, both highly decorated coaches. These two were able to teach me lifelong lessons that gave me an opportunity to run at a higher level. We won two cross country team state titles while I ran
for Stevens which increased the Stevens winning streak 10 consecutive state team titles in a row!
I am on the Stevens' “Top 10 list” for the mile, 2 mile, and 4x800 relay.
I joined the Colorado State University’s Cross Country and Track team in 2007. I competed on these teams for five years and learned a great deal about team dynamics and team politics. After some years of injury, I was able to compete on the varsity level. This opportunity took me all over the country and showed me what it takes to be a great team and a great coach.
I will be forever grateful for this experience.
Coaching at Stevens High School has been my first coaching position. I knew as an athlete that my true passion was giving back to runners. I found a great deal of joy helping my teammates and learning as much as I could from my coaches.
Once my college running career was over, I took my first opportunity in Rapid City as a volunteer. I volunteered with the Stevens Raiders for three years in varying rolls and eventually was given the honor to coach as the assistant coach under Jesse. This will be my fourth season as the assistant cross country coach at Stevens and I am excited more than ever!
