Frye Scores Big TD in Win

Fayetteville -- Alex Frye caught only two passes in Fayetteville Britt's 24-21 overtime victory over Fayetteville Smith. However, if not for his 25-yard fourth quarter touchdown reception, Britt would have sustained their fourth straight loss to their cross-town rival.

"They had called a slant just for me and I just knew I had to make a play," said Alex Frye. "Really I couldn't do anything without the rest of my defense, my quarterback Alex Butler, and everybody else making plays."

Although his catches will standout on the stat sheet, it's Frye's defensive prowess in Britt's secondary that's most valuable. Despite facing a predominately running team, Frye deflected one pass and recorded three tackles.

Secondary is also where Frye is being recruited – safety to be exact.

Frye, who claims Wake Forest and Maryland as his co-leaders, is in the process of setting up official visits with both schools.

"My dad and me are going to plan trip for an official visit to Wake Forest," said Frye. "I'm not sure on the date, but probably in a month or so. Hopefully I'll take an official [visit] to Maryland and whoever else that is interested."

The Terrapins have yet to extend Frye a scholarship offer, but Frye owns an offer from the Demon Deacons – as well as Duke and Virginia.

With Frye's play on both sides of the ball and the help of a handful of other division I-A prospects that are found on the roster – including North Carolina commit Wesley Flagg, Britt is off to a 3-0 record and considered one of the top 4A teams in North Carolina.
