Future Pack Spotlight: QB Hunter Fralick

Nevada has begun the process of looking for the successor to Cody Fajardo and local Spanish Springs senior quarterback Hunter Fralick, will look to step into the spot light in the coming years.

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 Fernando (Calif.).

"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 university. 

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.
