2013 OL Off To Impressive Start

Central High standout Cameron Fraser talks football and recruiting.

Phenix City, Ala.—Central High has gotten off to a hot start in 2011 and Southern Miss commitment Jonathan Wallace is one of the reasons why, but he hasn't done it all himself. A player that has helped pave the way for the quarterback is big junior offensive tackle Cameron Fraser.

At 6-4 ½, 275, Fraser definitely passes the looks test when he steps on the field and when the whistle blows he can back that up with tenacity and the ability to control things up front. He said for him just playing the game is a release and something he enjoys tremendously.

"I come off the ball quick," Fraser said of his game. "I have good pad level and I'm real strong in my legs and my upper body. I also get angry real easy. I'm an emotional player."

Last Friday night Fraser was at the point of attack time and time again as Wallace turned into Cam Newton and ran the ball over and over again against Opelika to salt away a big region win. Fraser said that's when it's fun to be an offensive lineman.

"They just have confidence in me that I'm going to make my blocks," Fraser said. "I have confidence in myself to get the job done when they call my number."

Fraser takes on Opelika's Torey Agee from last Friday's game.

His confidence was already high after an impressive summer on the camp circuit that included being named the Offensive Line MVP at the National Underclassman Combine over top players such as Jake Raulerson. Not bad for a player that has just been working at the game for three years.

"It really opened my eyes," Fraser said. "I just started playing football in the ninth grade so I just wanted to go out and show I could compete with the best of the best. I just knew that if I keep working hard everything will come to me."

His performance over the summer and early this season have already gotten the attention of two SEC schools and with plenty of football left this season and the chance to go deep into the 6A playoffs in Alabama there's little question Fraser's hopes that he'll get more interest from schools will happen.

"I have gotten some stuff from Mississippi State and Alabama, but that's all right now," Fraser said. "I want to be a physical trainer so I'm definitely looking at that in college. That's what I want to do. There are a few schools that I'm waiting to hear from. Auburn is one and probably Florida or Florida State. Those are the other three."
