"I was watching their practice and saw how intense and hard it was," Fitzgerald said. "I saw that they feed their big man all the time and their program is on the rise right now."
Fitzgerald, a Baltimore native, transferred to Wolfeboro (N.H.) Brewster Academy for his final season. Aside from being a reliable scorer, Fitzgerald is now a serious all-around player. In an effort to demonstrate his commitment to the game he lost 40 pounds in the last calendar year.
"He gets of stuff done," Brewster Academy coach Jason Smith said. "He's got tremendous footwork and feel. He's more skilled than people realize. He finishing everything around the rim and his footwork separates him from most kids."
