College Football: DSU’s Frye thriving after learning from last year’s veterans

National Sports

Natural ability can take you far in sports, but the work done off the field can do even more.

And after a year of mental and physical preparation, one Dickinson State receiver is poised for big things.

For Tyger Frye, last year was all about learning from senior receivers like Dylan Skabo and Seth Ewoniuk.

“That was really awesome to learn from them. I actually roomed with Seth Ewoniuk who was kind of the dude at my position,” Frye said, “so I went home with him and watched film every day. As a redshirt freshman my first year playing, I was a little iffy on plays still. I was asking Seth for help all the time.”

These days it’s a different story.

“This year, it’s been completely the opposite,” Frye said. “I’m now kind of the guy everybody asks.”

He wanted to be as prepared as possible going into the season, but after the first two games, he felt something was off.

“I almost felt like I was putting too much pressure on myself to do too much,” Frye said. “I kind of just took a step back this last week and really made sure I just played my game, and let the game come to me.”

It made a huge difference, as he caught nine passes for over 130 yards and two touchdowns.

“I feel like I could do that every weekend, as well as a lot of guys on our team,” Frye said. “I definitely felt as a team we started meshing a lot better together.”

And after that mental reset, he’s all about one thing going forward.

“Keep leading, keep pushing these guys to do the best they can,” Frye said. “I think the most important part is these days right here. No one’s watching you work, but we have to keep getting better and better.”

The Blue Hawks are back at home this Saturday when they face Presentation.
