Player Spotlight: Andrew Frisina

This year, junior Andrew Frisina has stepped up to fill an essential role on the Pioneer Offense. Playing his first two years on offense and being an impact player on Special Teams, Frisina has come to be known around the conference for his ability to catch the football. He is second on the team in receptions, with 40 on the year. He has caught the ball for over 570 yards, and averages over 70 yards receiving a game. Frisina has caught 4 Welch passes for TD's this year. Occasionally Frisina can be seen running the football and even on occasion throwing the ball-which he has 100% completion percentage.

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.

Top 10 Ranking in the West & upcoming Senior Game

This week Lewis and Clark College Football was ranked the #10 team in the West. They also received votes nominating them for the Top 25 rankings in the nation. The Pios have yet to crack into the national rankings list, but the presence of votes proves that the Pios are turning heads around the country. And the top 10 ranking in the west shows that those close by realize that the Pioneers are a force to be reckoned with. At 7-0 the Pioneers head into their last home game of the season vs. Willamette in the battle for the Wagon Wheel. 2000 was the most recent year the Pios took the Wagon Wheel home. The wheel has been the symbol of the rivalry since 1949.
