Froumy signs with Syracuse

Location played a huge role in Will Froumy’s decision to play college football for Syracuse University. Froumy, a two-way lineman from Exeter High School, took advantage of football’s early signing period to sign his national letter of intent Wednesday.

“I didn’t want to go too far from home,” Froumy explained. “Syracuse is about as far as I was willing to go. All the coaching staff … they’re all great guys, and Syracuse is just a great school.”

Froumy, who played offensive tackle and nose guard for the Blue Hawks last season, received his scholarship offer from Syracuse offensive line coach Mike Lynch after he attended a Syracuse camp in June. Froumy who is 6-foot-6 1/2 and  weighs 295 pounds, is expected to play offensive tackle for the Orange.

“He has all the measurables that put him as an offensive guard/tackle,” Exeter coach Bill Ball said. “Wingspan. Good feet. Obviously a redshirt year will be huge for him to learn their scheme, and bigger, faster, stronger — that whole deal. Real good fit for him. The (Syracuse) staff was first class.

“He worked hard. He really turned himself around from his junior to his senior year. Weight room. Conditioning. He became a big, strong kid.”

Froumy, who lives in Exeter, also had scholarship offers from Maine, UNH, UMass and Bryant. He committed to Syracuse in June and said he never gave that commitment a second thought

“I was set in stone,” he said. “I think being in the Exeter program has taught me well. Coach Ball taught me how to work hard, and there’s a lot of stuff through coach Ball’s program that will help me make it at the next level.”
