Back in 2002, when Fulbright was 17 years old, he suffered a spinal cord injury during his senior year at the state championship football game.
According to his family, both of Fulbright’s lungs collapsed and his body was too weak to recover.
For the past two decades, Fulbright was a role model to many across North Texas.
