Alumnus Organizes “Fight On Frazier” Campaign

In what has been a tough week of injuries for Penn State athletics — starting with the Michael Mauti knee injury last Saturday against Indiana — Nittany Lions senior point guard Tim Frazier will miss the remainder of the season with a ruptured Achilles tendon.

Frazier is without a doubt the best and most important player on the basketball team, as he essentially runs the offense himself. He is an extremely talented athlete and the team will certainly be much worse with his absence on the court.

As you may have seen, alumnus Kelly Burns organized an event for Michael Mauti, called “Morale For Mauti”, to send well-wishes to the injured linebacker through cards and letters. Burns’ campaign picked up over 2,000 participants in its Facebook group within one day.

She has now put together a similar Facebook event entitled “Fight On Frazier,” an attempt to “boost the morale of Tim Frazier and his family as he works to recover from his injury.” Burns urges any interested fans to send Frazier a message by filling out this Google Doc.

“Throughout his basketball career at Penn State, Tim has been a true leader and a stand-up member of the PSU community,” the event description says. “We hope to see him return to the court next season.”
