Zach Frazier Staying Focused on Guiding West Virginia Despite NFL Hype

MORGANTOWN, W.Va – Zach Frazier knows most experts are predicting he will be an NFL draft pick, but he’s not letting that cloud his focus right now.

For Frazier, a Fairmont, West Virginia native, it’s all about being the best he can be to help the 2023 Mountaineers surprise people and get the program he grew up loving back headed in the right direction.

After sitting out the spring session, Frazier is now a full go to prepare for the fall. While Frazier didn’t have one exact thing he feel he needs to work on when prompted, and that’s fair for a player who is regarded as one of the best in the nation at his position and on every watch list imaginable, he uses each and every day as an opportunity to get better.

He’s also very conscious of the fact he’s now approaching his final college games, most notably his last games representing West Virginia and playing on Mountaineer Field.

“It’s meant everything. Growing up in Fairmont, you grow up watching WVU and coming to games. It’s what I’ve always dreamed of. It’s been really special,” Frazier said about what playing for WVU has meant to him.

Frazier, one of the team leaders, is confident in this group of players despite being picked to finish last in the Big 12. “When you get picked last, it’s a slap in the face. But it does fire you up.. it’s good motivation and we look forward to proving everyone wrong.”

Part of his confidence comes from his fellow offensive linemen and that West Virginia will be led by a true dual-threat quarterback for the first time in a while. Frazier explained how mobility under center will make things easier on himself and the rest of the line.

“Both of our QBs now are more mobile.. I think that’s going to be fun to watch this year. It makes it easier on us too. If everyone is guarded down field they can take off for a big gains.”

Frazier knows the importance of this season, not only for the future of the program, but also his personal career. But with that said, Frazier is prepared to do everything he has to do for West Virginia as long he’s wearing the Mountaineer old gold and blue colors.
