  • Unlike many athletes selected to the Army All-American Bowl, Frazer has his recruiting behind him, as the Pa. single season passing record holder committed to Notre Dame in April. Zach Frazer was humble, but committed as he spoke, accepting his award by thanking God, his family, his friends, coaches and teammates, as well as the U.S. Army for helping him achieve this honor.

    A packed gymnasium exploded with the announcement, which was made during a pep rally for the entire student body at Mechanicsburg High School. Head coach Rich Lichtel praised Frazer's performance and the character, and thanked the staff, students and administration at Mechanicsburg, as well as the community for providing an environment which encourages success.

    Frazer has a cannon, yet he has an amazing touch on the deep ball. He can throw the short to intermediate routes as well. He does not possess great 40 speed, but after watching tape on Frazer you can tell he is not slow, he has football speed, says Bob Lichtenfels of Frazer's Mechanicsburg Wildcats have their home opener tonight, and Zach spoke after the presentation about focus, and going out and performing regardless of the hype surrounding him this week. The U.S. Army All-American Bowl kicks off on Saturday, January 7, 2006 from the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Recommended Stories
