Community Hero - Eddie FraiserRegular price $1.99
Community leader, mentor and coach Eddie Frasier promised in his social media introduction, in June of 2019 as the new Head Football coach of his alma mater. To GIVE his ALL to the young men he coached, the high school he attended and the community he loved, with every fiber of his being. And that's exactly what he did, in his brief but, truly impactful and program changing stint as the head man in charge at Dillard High School. An institution of learning with a rich tradition and history of excellence. A tradition of excellence, that if you asked members of the community, he helped bring back to its glory days. Given that, he genuinely cared for the players, the alumni and the Dillard High School brand. His passion spoke volumes and his players would soon become fluent in this language, as they began to embody their coach's enthusiasm on and off the field. Many observers would also add, the unmistakable love and admiration his players had for him. It's not unusual for coaches to be loved by the players they coach but, there was absolutely something unique about the relationship he had with his boys at DHS.
- Little League - Lauderdale Lakes Vikings State Championship (Unlimited)
- Middle School - Back to Back County Champions (23-1 record)
- Junior Varsity - 1 lost in 2 years. First Undefeated team since the early 2000s.
- Varsity - 12-0, 2019 Large School Coach of The Year.
With all that being said, it would be irresponsible to ONLY tout his football accomplishments because he was more than just a coach. He was a father figure, a positive black male role model, an educator, an incredible friend and a truly special one of a kind individual. The type of special individual that during the worse pandemic in modern American history, people from various walks of life, did not hesitate to pay their respects. Knowing the possible health risks involved by attending his wake in an environment that was impossible to practice social distancing.
