Fryfogle Brothers Enjoying Life And Hockey In Colorado
Bayly Fryfogle and Brayden Fryfogle are in new leagues, on a new team, in a new country. With the ongoing pandemic, that is a lot of change.
But, the brother duo is thriving with the USPHL’s Northern Colorado Eagles.
“The season so far has been really good,” says older brother Bayly Fryfogle.
“We are one point behind for first in the entire league so we are pretty happy about that.”
Bayly, who spent last season with the GOJHL’s Strathroy Rockets, and is a Dresden Kings alumni, has 11 points in 17 games from the Eagles’ blueline.
Younger brother Brayden is also enjoying the season in Colorado, although he recently suffered an injury that will keep the Chatham-Kent Cyclones alumni out of the lineup.
“The season’s going good, had an okay start to the season until I recently separated my shoulder against the Provo Riverblades,” Brayden Fryfogle explained.
Despite the rampant numbers in the United States, neither Fryfogle brother has been overly concerned with COVID-19, as they are spending almost all of their time at home, or at the rink, and are tested regularly, in particular before each road trip.
As some of the only local players on the ice competing in games, the Fryfogle brothers consider themselves lucky, and are enjoying every minute of their season.
“I love it here in the States and being on the ice every day. I plan to become a reliable and constant player by the end of the year, as well as a better teammate and better person,” explained Brayden.
“My goals for the rest of the season are to improve my defensive game while also jumping up into the play to help the forwards too,” said Bayly.
Luckily for Brayden and Bayly Fryogle, the opportunity to play and improve is there’s for the taking as they continue their season with the Northern Colorado Eagles.
