Quarterback Jeremy Frazier II of Woodbridge Senior High School (2022 QB 6-0 180) has his eyes set on big goals and on working hard to get to them. He prides himself on being the hardest worker on the team and outworking everyone in his way to achieve his desired outcome.
At the Recruit757 Spotlight Exposure Camp, Jeremy was a full participant. He participated in drills that tested his agility and quickness. He enjoyed not only the opportunity, but the competition that he had at the camp. “It was just a great time to workout with this competition that was here today,” Jeremy said. While Jeremy was one of the few players from Northern Virginia, he says that the style of play is slightly different. He jokes around when he says that “Northern Virginia works harder than Southern Virginia”, drawing ire from the Southern Virginia crowd. The camp featured many people like Jeremy who grind for every opportunity given to them. Jeremy appreciates that fact, stating, “I had a blast working out with these great, hard workers. They were great competition, and I’m really proud of myself for what I did today.”
A question that is asked to many players which yields many different responses is the one about what a champion is to them. The answer can have a literal meaning: a person who wins a title, or it can have a different meaning, such as the one Jeremy gave. “A champion does whatever it takes to get to the place he needs to be. He works with his team, by himself, and when nobody is watching. He is humble, and does what is needed of him,” Jeremy explains.
The biggest thing for a quarterback is to be an on-field coach, directing traffic and making sure everyone knows what to do and how to do so. Jeremy is no exception. As far as the player-coach relationship, Jeremy says, “It is very important to me. I think they have to be on the same page at all times. Just being on the same level helps the team out, helps the coaches out with getting info out to the team, and helps us win football games.” Jeremy thinks that the fact that the season has been canceled changes nothing for him. “I’m still going to work as hard as I would have had there been a season. I’m still going to work harder than I did last season to get to where I want to be,” Jeremy explains.
When he thinks about himself, he thinks of a tough, hard working player who won’t take no for an answer and one that will never stop working. “You have to be the toughest person on the field,” he says, “You have to get hit and get back up constantly and just keep playing.” He makes sure that he is the most prepared player in all instances, being ready for any situation that may arise. He remains confident that his hard working attitude will propel him to the top of the mountain someday.
