Ridgewood coach Jay Fulmer has officially reunited with his son on the field.

QB Will Fulmer has transferred from Hudson and enrolled at Ridgewood, the Fulmers said Wednesday morning.

“It’s been a long time coming…” Jay Fulmer said. “It’s gonna be a short-lived celebration. We’ve got so much to do to get ready.”

Jay coached his son during Will’s freshman year at Gulf, before an alleged recruiting controversy led to the coach’s suspension before the 2010 season. The younger Fulmer threw for 487 yards and four touchdowns with the Buccaneers that year.

The 6-foot-2 quarterback threw for 22 yards at Hudson last season before an ankle injury sidelined him after the Cobras’ second game.

Because rushing back from the torn ligaments could have ended his high school career, Will took his recovery slowly. Doctors finally cleared him to play about three weeks ago.

Now he has a place to play. He’ll be back on the field with his dad, who was hired just before the Rams’ spring practice began.

“Now we’ve gotta do what we set out to do four years ago,” the coach said. “That’s to send him out a winner.”
