2018 (Freshman): Fisher was selected as the Ohio Valley Conference Freshman of the Year and was a finalist for the STATS FCS Jerry Rice Award, recognizing the top freshman player in the Football Championship Subdivision, and with the numbers he put up in his rookie campaign, it's hard not to see why. He played and started in 10 games, missing only the season finale against Eastern Kentucky with an injury. Through that span, he threw for 1,681 yards and 11 touchdowns as he completed 139 of his 268 passes. Those numbers stand as the best performance by a true freshman quarterback in Tech history as well as the 14th most passing yards in a single season for the Golden Eagles.

Fisher was also the team's second-leading rusher, collecting 346 yards on 106 carries, with two touchdowns. His 2,027 yards of total offense ranks as the ninth-best season in school history and the best by a true freshman.

Before he closed out his first year, Fisher already made notations to the Tech record book. Against Eastern Illinois, he threw for 383 yards -- the fifth-most by a Tech quarterback in a single game and the most by a true freshman. Against Southeast Missouri, he threw the third-longest pass completion in school history with an 85-yard touchdown strike to Darrius Stafford. He also threw four touchdown passes in the EIU contest, tying him for the No. 4-spot in most touchdown passes in a single game, one shy of the school record of five, held by Grant Swallows twice and Stephen Britton. He has three 200-plus passing yard games, 10 shy of tying Robert Craft, Lee Sweeney and Tre Lamb for the most in program history.

His best completion rate (65.9 percent) came against EIU as he completed 27-of-41 passes. He had 11 rushes for a career-high 78 yards against Chattanooga, then rushed a career-high 16 times against Murray State for 76 yards.

HIGH SCHOOL: Fisher passed for 3,341 yards as a senior with 43 touchdowns, averaging 222.7 yards per game. He completed 211 of his 297 attempts and also rushed for 1,283 yards on 221 carries (85.5 avg. per game) with 27 touchdowns and seven games with 100 or more rushing yards. With Rabun County High, Fisher earned four region championships in his tenure. In his career, he threw for 9,383 yards and 113 touchdowns, while also rushing for 3,075 yards and 57 touchdowns.

PERSONAL: The son of Donna Fisher ... born June 1, 1999, in Johnston County, N.C.

ACADEMICS: Plans to major in education.
