Not only is Andrew a threat on the football field, despite his seemingly short stature, he is a menace on the baseball diamond. He's started 22 of 28 games with a slugging percentage of .367 last year with 2 HR and 9 RBIs, also being Hit by Pitches a staggering 5 times.
Frisina is one of many California natives on the team, hailing from San Pedro H.S. and a graduate of Rolling Hills Prep, where his father is the head coach and where is brother/teammate Torey Frisina is also a grad. Torey, Andrew's older brother, transferred into LC after his experience at the University of Redlands, and now plays defensive back for the Pios.

Keith is one of the many Northern California natives on the Pioneer football team, a graduate of Fairfield H.S. Welch is known on the team not only for his athletic skills, but also his jokes-which seem to come in an endless stream. After 7 A.M. practice he can often be heard looking for a ride to go to McDonald's and get breakfast. There is no doubt that Welch is a leader of the Pioneer football program, his talents and skills set him apart as a gifted athlete who continues to perform and post impressive stat sheets. He was named to the d3football.com Team of the Week last week for his 4 touchdown performance in the LC homecoming victory over UPS.
When asked about the team Welch said "I love these guys, they're my family." And when asked about the upcoming game at Pacific Lutheran he said "We understand it's going to be a battle, but we've been preparing for this war."

There is no other experience like playing football in a foreign country. You get to experience new cultures, learn new languages, get to see amazing historical sites, and play the game that you love. On top of that, you get paid to do it! Can’t beat that.
1.Favorite thing about Poland?
My favorite thing about Poland has been learning about the Second World War’s impact on the country. I live right in the middle of downtown Warsaw, the country’s capital, and during WWII the city was completely destroyed by the Germans. There were 1,300,000 people who lived in Warsaw before the German invasion and only 1,000 people were still living in the ruins after the war ended. It is amazing to see how the city is now after seeing pictures of the ruins.
2.How do you spend your time?
I really don’t have very many things that occupy my time during the week. I have 2 ones hour and a half practices each week on Tuesdays and Thursdays and then play our games on either Saturday or Sunday. Before I practice on Thursday, the other Americans and I go and help coach at our junior team’s practice. We serve not only as coaches for the junior team, but also on our own team. It is very common to be a player coach in Europe.
During the day, I’ll go to the gym and workout and do some site seeing with some of my teammates. I’ll also watch film of the upcoming opponent and break down their game film. Most of the guys on the team do not know how to watch film properly, so I will always go over the film with them at practice and tell them what to look for when they watch it.
3.Whats the number 1 question foreigners ask you?
“Where is Oregon?” Anytime I tell someone where I’m from, that’s usually the question I get. Everyone in Europe knows where California because of Hollywood and all of the movies, so I just explain it by saying that it is the state that borders California to the north. Then they always assume that the weather is just as nice in Oregon as it is in California.
4.Anything you've learned to say in Polish?
The guys have taught me how to say some things on the field, but I don’t really know how to say too many things that I would say to my mother. I’m learning though, slowly but surely.
5.How is the team lookin'?
We’re looking pretty solid. There are a lot of big and athletic guys on our team, they just don’t know the game very well because football has only been in Poland for about six years. There are three other Americans on the team, two of which were DIII All-Americans. We’re picked to finish third or forth in the league, but we’re about to surprise a lot of people.
6. You've played football in France, Denmark and now Poland, which is the best?
That’s a tough question. I had a great time playing in France and Denmark, but I also love it so far in Poland. I would have to say that each country has different things to offer. France has amazing food and wine, Denmark has the happiest people that I’ve ever seen and gorgeous girls (although Poland is up there too), and I like Poland’s history and am impressed by the resiliency of the Polish people for rebuilding their country after WWII.
