Two-Sport Student/Athlete Ready For Next Step

Reporter Mike Sullivan provides a detailed look at the sports career of two-sport student athlete Chandler Fraser-Pauls, who will be playing soccer and perhaps basketball on the next level ...

Chandler Fraser-Pauls, equally effective on a sports field or in the classroom, will be graduating soon from the Pennington School in Pennington, New Jersey with a bright future ahead due to his hard work.

Chandler scored close to 20 points a game this past season for the boy's basketball team at The Pennington School while handing out seven assists per contest for a program that played some very tough teams.

Fraser-Pauls has already inked a letter of intent with Lafayette to play soccer on a scholarship. But he's more than a soccer player. He could walk on and play for the men's basketball team while trying to reach the goal of getting a degree at one of the country's toughest academic schools.

PREVIOUSLY REPORTED:

We reported earlier in this article that Chandler accepted a scholarship from Lafayette to play soccer. Boston University had also offered a soccer scholarship previously in his recruiting process.

Chandler has the skill level to make solid contributions in both sports -- soccer and basketball. The senior's leadership skills are also impressive and are important also out of the sports arena.

CHANDLER'S BASKETBALL SEASON AS A JUNIOR:

Fraser-Pauls, who helped his team win the Mercer County Championship, sparked his team to a 23-2 record in basketball.

Fraser-Pauls, who averaged 16 points a game and five assists per contest his season as a junior, worked very hard on his mid-range perimeter game and landed many honors from the top newspapers in the New Jersey area.

In addition, he sharpened his floor general skills during the summer AAU events playing for Team NJABC, a program which competed in many of the top tournaments.
