Class of 2022 Moon offensive lineman Trent Fraley’s first college offer comes with some family familiarity.
Fraley announced Wednesday afternoon that he has received an offer from Robert Morris, where his dad, Hank, played from 1996-99. Trent, who was named a WPIAL 5A Allegheny Six All-Conference selection at tackle in 2020, likes the idea of pick up where Hank left off.
“That’s really cool, and it would be just awesome to follow in my dad’s footsteps,” Trent Fraley said to Pittsburgh Sports Now. “It would just be really cool to go there and experience what he went through in a way.”
The 6-foot-2, 290-pound high school junior also talked about what he could do help whichever program he decides to join.
“I’m pretty physical, and whenever I go out there, I go out there to win and just dominate the person in front of me,” he said. :”In my head, before I go into most of my games, I’m always thinking ‘I want this kid to not want to go against me.'”
Fraley said that he has talked to a few other schools, like Marshall, and has planned to go to camps over the summer, but the Colonials are his first offer.
Hank Fraley was an 11-year veteran at center in the NFL. He played for the Philadelphia Eagles, Cleveland Browns, and then St.Louis Rams. His number 75 was retired by RMU in 2001 and he was inducted into the Robert Morris Athletic Hall of Fame in 2006. Hank was an offensive line coach for San Diego University, San Jose State before coaching in the NFL and had a one-year stop at UCLA in 2017. Fraley spent 2014-16 as an assistant offensive line coach for the Minnesota Vikings and is currently the offensive line coach for the Detroit Lions after spending the last two years as an assistant offensive line coach in Detroit.
