Athlete of the Week: Adam Frasz

Athlete of the Week: Adam Frasz

Adam Frasz is a three-year varsity member of the UHS golf team. He is currently the number one golfer on the team and a veteran leader. Adam has posted impressive scores this season thus far, including an 89 at the Winding River Tournament (18 holes) and a 44 vs. Lutheran High School (9 holes). Like many of the spring sports this year, there have been many cancellations due to the weather. However, the team has had a promising start and is on their way to an impressive year. Not only does Adam set a good example on the golf course, but few, if any, UHS students have as much school spirit as he does. I got a chance to sit down with Adam, and he was able to answer a few questions that I had.

Here are the results:

How long have you been playing golf?
I have been playing golf for 14 years. I got to hit plastic balls with a plastic club when I was 2, and I got my first set of clubs when I was 3.

Why did you start playing?
My father introduced me to golf, and I started to become good at the sport. It soon became a passion of mine.

What has been your best memory from the University golf team?
There are several good memories from being on the UHS team. Last year’s sectional was a blast. We had several teachers and a couple of students come, and it was a lot of fun. We also set a team record that day.

Who is your favorite professional athlete and/or team?
It’s hard to say who my favorite professional athlete is, but I like the golfers Rory McIroy and Adam Scott.

What other sports/activities are you associated with at University?
I played basketball my junior year, and it was worth the experience. I liked my coach, and it was fun playing in the games. I was new to the game and was not a big scorer, but I hustled when I could.

Do you have any future plans? College, major, etc.
I’m still deciding which college to attend. I would like to go to Ohio Wesleyan, Taylor, or any other school that will suit me well. I want to major in geography and/or American politics. My first dream was to become a professional golfer and to design golf courses, but my dream is always able to change.

Favorite actor?
My favorite actor is Kirk Cameron, best known for his role as Mike Seaver on Growing Pains.

Favorite teacher?
Oh gosh, I like a lot of teachers. I especially like my coach, Mr. FitzGibbon, and my mentor, Mr. Morrison. Mr. Thurman is really cool, and Mr. Bradley always makes me laugh as well.

Favorite vacation spot?
I went to Big Sky, Montana in June of 2011. It was very beautiful there, and it was a cool experience touring Yellowstone, zip-lining, horseback riding, hiking, golfing, and eating good food.

What is your dream car?
If I had a dream car, it would be a Mercedes-Benz or a Cadillac.

Do you have anything you would like to say to our countless The U Post viewers?
Another thing I want to mention is that when I play during my matches, especially when they are big, I carry the will of my friends and family to keep me in the game, even when I struggle.
