INTERESTING FACT OR EXPERIENCE THAT HELPED SHAPE LIFE: “This sport is very special to me, not for the bragging rights nor climbing the ranks to be on top. Growing up I had a very special relationship with my dad. He had his mindset that I would make it to the MLB to be a pitcher. When I was 10 years old, I lost my dad in an automobile accident. This changed my whole life story prior to his plan. Not having the support to continue baseball, I had always heard stories of how naturally strong my dad was. I knew that this was my new calling in life. So arm-wrestling to me is a link that keeps my dad and me spiritually together. I believe that experiencing chills before a tournament is his way of letting me know that he is here with me.”
UNIQUE FACT: Fraley is extremely close with his family, everyone from his grandmother to his immediate family. He says, “I treat my uncle as my second dad, and all my cousins are like my brothers and sisters. I can definitely say that we have each other’s backs in life. I’m very thankful for them.”
