With Nevada's new coaching staff looking to upgrade their roster in talent, this young man possesses that and more but a characteristic that makes him unique is his work ethic.
"I think they like the fact that I'm a competitor, and I would even
call myself a gym rat to an extent," Fralick said. "Like I said,
I'm a guy that's going to get after it."
That is the attitude head coach Brian Polian loves and will look for in
the rest of his players.
But it's not a sure thing Fralick takes over without having to outplay
Cris Solano, another quarterback the Wolf Pack recently recruited from San
"If anything, I'm glad that they did because it will push me that much
harder to what I have to earn," said a confident Fralick.
With that said, Fralick became the fourth quarterback in Northern
Nevada high school history to earn a scholarship at a Division 1
The 6-foot-2, 200-pound Fralick, a starter since his sophomore season,
ranks second in Nevada's top-division high school record books in
career passing yards (6,990) and third in passing touchdowns (48). This
year, he's thrown for 2,028 yards and 11 touchdowns and rushed for
1,077 yards and 16 more scores.
"I'm a pretty smart and savvy football player, I have a really good
feel for the game I think," said a chuckling Fralick.
Even with so much confidence, he knows he has to continue to improve
his body and knowledge of the game.
"I need to get bigger, faster and stronger," Fralick said. "But the
most important thing would be just knowledge of the game in terms of
more film study, more looking at what defenses are trying to do, so the
more mental side of the game."
Fralick's decision also came down to the great education Nevada can
offer him. He plans on majoring in business or education and his
goal is to become a teacher if he doesn't make it to the NFL.
Wolf Pack football's future just got a lot brighter.
