From Halifax’s Citadel High School the Gryphons have landed one of the country’s most sought after offensive weapons. Citadel Phoenix speedster A’dre Fraser, a 6’0″ 170 lb receiver and return specialist, will be heading to Guelph this summer. Fraser is an elusive playmaker with 4.5 speed in the 40. No need for me to tell you any more when you can see his athleticism for yourself in his highlights below.
Fraser won back-to-back Nova Scotia high school Tier 1 championships with the Phoenix the past two seasons. In 2010, Fraser was the teams Rookie of the Year. In 2011, he was named a team captain. Fraser scored 18 touchdowns in 10 games on his way to being selected the NSSAF Overall MVP and the Special Teams Player of the Year. Fraser was a first team Nova Scotia All Star at receiver.
Fraser’s honours went well beyond these high school accomplishments. He was a member of the Team Nova Scotia under-18 squad in 2011 and offensive MVP of the under-17 squad in 2010. Also in 2010 he was a Junior Varsity Offensive MVP in the NSFVL summer league. On top of that Fraser appears to have won at least 7 more awards at football camps and combines, including Wide Receiver MVP and overall MVP at a North Carolina football camp.
With Team Nova Scotia Fraser played for Todd Galloway who was the team’s offensive coordinator. Fraser visited the Guelph campus last summer on his way home from the Football Canada Cup in Lethbridge AB. Galloway made a recruiting trip to Nova Scotia back in November. Fraser was recruited by all the AUS schools, our OUA rivals – Western, McMaster & Queen’s, plus several CanWest programs.
