  • 28. April 20, 2012 — MOUNTAINEER 29Mountaineer Athlete of the Week Dan Fraizer Youth sports and fitness director Dan Fraizer didn’t start his adult life working in youth sports, but Fort Carson’s new youth and sports fitness director quickly learned that his calling would be in helping children get the most out of youth sports programs. Upon leaving active duty in Germany, Fraizer started looking for a profession he could feel comfortable with and, after working as a volunteer in youth sports programs, eventually found himself leading a youth sports program in Germany. How did you get involved with youth sports? I have always been passionate about sports. When I got out of the Army one of the first jobs I interviewed for was to become the youth sports and fitness director in Germany. Although I didn’t get that job, I realized it was a passion of mine. I then began volunteering and built my resume. What is your favorite personal sports moment? I had an opportunity in the summer of 2005 to play semiprofessional football in Germany. I got to play middle linebacker ... it gave me a chance to hang out with the guys again and play sports which is something I never thought I would do after high school. What is your favorite professional sports moment? I am a diehard Cubs fan so it’s tough to find a moment (that) is a favorite. But I am also a Bears fan so the 1985 Super Bowl is a very good memory for me. My dad was a big Bears fan and unfortunately since 1980 I haven’t had a lot to cheer about in professional sports. Why is it important for children to play youth sports? You can learn so much by participating in sports from a physical and mental aspect. They learn teamwork and sportsmanship and just how far they can push themselves and that is incredibly important. Also with military children moving so much, they immediately become a part of something and they make a lot of good friends. People who do not know me would be surprised to know that … I am an amazing cook. I like to eat everything, so I wanted to learn how to cook it. Photo by Walt Johnson
