by: Steven Ryzewski Senior Sports Editor

Rolous Frazier III has been a standout all season for the The First Academy Royals, who are undefeated at 7-0. In addition to four touchdowns in a single game against Trinity Prep Oct. 13, Frazier leads the Royals with 721 rushing yards — good for an average of 8.2 yards per carry. 


What was it like to be a part of the team’s 57-41 win over Trinity Prep, during which you scored four touchdowns?

The game was incredibly exciting. Fans love to see offensive, high-scoring games. I felt great, I felt like I really couldn’t be stopped. I was trying to get a touchdown every time.


Are you surprised at how well you’ve done this fall?

Not really — I had high expectations coming in, so I’m just trying to meet those goals and trusting my team and my (offensive) line to get those goals accomplished.


Of which win are you most proud?

I’d say the Trinity Prep game. We did great — the offense was unstoppable, and the defense stepped up in key moments. It was an exciting game.


What does this team have to do to be successful in the playoffs?

Mostly mental stuff — knowing where to line up, knowing how to take a certain angle on this play or that play.


Which NFL players do you admire?

For a running back, I’m quick and short, so I like watching De’Anthony Thomas. On defense, Tyrann Mathieu and Patrick Peterson.

Which college and NFL teams are your favorites?

College: My mom was FSU, so FSU. In the NFL, it don’t really matter — I like (following) players more than teams.

What’s your favorite class?

I like learning new stuff, like religion stuff, and we have a religion class here where I’ve learned a lot.


What’s the most interesting thing you’ve learned about this fall in school?

Learning how the seasons happen and how the Earth’s tilt affects everything in science.

What do you think you would like to do for a career after college?

I’d like to get into coaching or be a sports agent.


What’s your dream car?

I would say a Lamborghini Aventador.


If you’re stranded on a deserted island with a Blu-ray player and can bring only one movie, which movie would it be?

Either “Furious 7” or “Transformers: The Last Knight.”


What do you like the most about attending The First Academy?

There’s not too many kids — I know some high schools have thousands of kids. The teachers here actually help you a lot.


What’s your favorite shoe/apparel brand?

Nike — they’re creative on their stuff, the colors and schemes, and I love their jackets.
