Fradi: 'I can't wait to get to CMU'

ChippewaCountry has been following three star linebacker Nores Fradi since the day he committed back in the summer. After averaging over 15 tackles a game and playing numerous roles for his Dearborn High team, Fradi received a major honor that he had placed as a goal for himself since he started playing football.

"I was just named to the Detroit Free Press Dream Team," Fradi said. "I'm really excited about it, I was All-State last year, but it's been a goal of mine since I was young to receive that honor."

Dearborn finished the season at 5-4, making them just short for playoff qualification. Even with that, the season was still deemed a success by Fradi.

"I thought we had a pretty good season. I had a real good season individually, but we didn't really go as far as a team. We opened the new field this season and I thought overall, it was a fun season at Dearborn. I will have a lot of memories and had some good times."

Right now, Fradi is prepping for basketball season and admits he won't be receiving any interest from Division 1 schools for his play on the hardwood.

"Basketball is going pretty good," said Fradi. "I just do it to stay in shape, if I didn't do it I would get lazy and put on too much weight. I work out two hours a day in addition to practice, but it just keeps me active and busy."

ChippewaCountry caught up with Fradi briefly at the Toledo game earlier this season and he was also present at the Chippewas victory over Northern Illinois.

"I came up for the Toledo game and the Northern Illinois game," said Fradi. "It was a really good experience and I got to see the game day experience and the stadium. I spoke with Kevin Henry a little bit and I just can't wait to join the rest of the guys on campus. I also spoke to some of the freshman right now, like Alex Smith, just to see how they were doing and such."

Despite being down in Dearborn, Fradi will not be making a trip to the MAC Championship game this Friday to watch Central Michigan.

"I wanted to go, but I talked to the coaches and they said they couldn't give tickets for championship games," said Fradi. "I was going to just buy a ticket and go myself, but I wanted to be on the sideline with the guys and I'll probably just catch the game on TV now."
