Hello, my name is Derek J. Frye. I usually go by DJ. My goal in the next five years is to improve my game every year so that I can be the best player I can be for me and my team. My aspirations are very high for myself. I want to achieve a Division 1 basketball scholarship through hard work in the classroom and with hard work on the court. I am a good candidate for any program because I am a hard worker in both the classroom and the court. I am a good listener who is willing to learn different positions to become a better all around player. For example until this year I was a wing player and combo guard and this year I have sacrificed for my team and I'm playing on the post and block because my coaches feel this is the best way for me to help my team this year. It has been a great learning experience for me. I am a person with high character who goes to church every Sunday and donate to the needy. I already have had a job cutting lawns in the Summer which I built up myself, which shows I can work hard. I feel that I will be an asset to any program because I can score or set up my team for buckets. I am a prime defender guarding bigs or guards. I can score inside and out. I love the game and no coach will never say I am not a hard worker. All I ask is that you give me the chance I will have earned and no coach or school will be sorry they chose me for the opportunity. I will make the school who chooses me proud that I am part of their institution. My goal after playing pro ball is to become and sportscaster, surgeon,-pediatrician, coach or lawyer (being a sports agent). I plan on being a person who makes the world hopefully a better place to live by also giving back to my community to repay those have helped me as young man. I would like to thank the NCSA for allowing me to tell them a little bit about myself.
