Chandler Fraser-Pauls, a two-sport student/athlete from the Pennington School in New Jersey, helped his team win another Mercer County Championship last night.

The Pennington School defeated Ewing last night to make it two titles in a row. Pennington finished the season with a 23-2 record.

Chandler, also a very efficient soccer player, is on the radar with Boston University. "Boston University has offered me a spot on their men's soccer team, and it's a great offer," he said.

Fraser-Pauls, who averaged 16 points a game and five assists per contest his season as a junior, is a member of the 2011 class.

Chandler said he worked very hard on his mid-range perimeter game. In addition, he was trying to become a more accomplished floor general, polishing his lead guard skills.

Chandler, who plays for his father on the Team NJABC AAU program, expects to compete in Jimmy Salmon's Playaz Spring Fling next month.

He is looking to strengthen his frame, work on his right hand (he's a lefty).

Several Ivy League and Patriot League schools have kept in touch with Chandler, monitoring his seasonal progress. In addition, Davidson, Elon, and Vermont expressed previous interest.

Fraser-Pauls, who competes at the midfield and forward positions for the soccer team, is still up in the air regarding whether he'll focus on one sport or try two on the college level.

Bucknell, Lafayette, and recently Villanova showed some interest in the soccer part of Chandler's athletic career.

Fraser-Pauls already has a career in mind -- coaching.
