THE PRAISE

“He’s an outstanding athlete with excellent skills who makes his teammates better,” said Bob Maronde, head coach of rival Grafton (Wis.). “He could’ve easily scored 40 points a game, but it was more important to him that his team succeeds. He’s a classy young man with enormous potential and small ego.”

THE FUTURE: Fischer has signed with Indiana.
