Fisher is one of Glynn Academy’s all-time football greats especially on the offensive side of the ball. In three seasons as a starting wide receiver with the Red Terrors from 1983-85, Fisher compiled outstanding numbers that included 143 career receptions for 2,613 yards and 26 touchdowns. He also rushed 178 times for 808 yards and 29 touchdowns, and was 7-for-13 passing for 271 yards and two touchdowns. For his prep career, Fisher totaled 3,692 total offensive yards and scored 58 touchdowns including three on kick returns in three seasons with the Terrors.

When Fisher was a sophomore, he was the top target for Glynn quarterback Bobby Wilkes who threw for a then-state-record 2,143 yards in 10 games. Fisher caught 44 passes for 813 yards during the 10-game regular-season and finished with 52 catches for 961 yards in 12 games. As a senior, he finished with 44 receptions for 921 yards and was named to the Class AAAA All-State team while also being named a second-team All-American by USA Today.

Fisher went on to a standout college career at Valdosta State, where he is considered one of the program’s first stars. Fisher was a four-year starter for the Blazers and was named first-team All-Gulf South Conference each of his four seasons. Fisher was the first Blazers player to be named the Gulf South Freshman of the Year. He was named an NCAA Division II All-American in 1989. Fisher ranks sixth in the team’s record books for career receptions, third for receiving yards and fifth for receiving touchdowns. He was inducted into the Valdosta State Hall of Fame in 2010.

Fisher played briefly with the New Orleans Saints after college. He still resides locally.
