U of R committ Fuchs lives his dream

Jaxon Fuchs’ Dad was very involved in football and thought Jaxon would be interested in trying the sport out. Jaxon’s Dad signed him up for flag football and eventually Jaxon decided to give tackle a try. “I thought it was very fun and I have been playing ever since,” he said.

Football means a lot to Jaxon, he replied, “I don’t think I’d be the same person I am right now without it. It’s helped to teach me that discipline and hard work will help you achieve your goals.”

If Jaxon isn’t breaking up passes on the field he can be found practicing a form of martial arts called “kempo”, which is like tai-kwon-do and karate mixed together.

Jaxon’s biggest moment in football was getting to the city championship when he was in grade ten with the Riffel Royals. He mentioned, “We ended up losing the game to LeBoldus, but it was still a great experience that I will never forget.”

The Royals’ standout enjoys defensive back because he’s able to hit people. Jaxon thinks his speed gives him an edge as a football player because it is one of his strengths.

Jaxon likes playing man coverage because it’s just you and the receiver battling it out to see who makes the play.

Over the years Jaxon has looked up to Kam Chancellor of the Seattle Seahawks. “I love his physical style of play and the way he makes plays against both the pass and run.”

Jaxon doesn’t have a favourite quote that gets him ready to play. However, he really likes the way his team bands together before a game and gets each other fired up.

The football season has already started for Jaxon and the Royals. Jaxon is really looking forward to playing against some of the best teams in the city and showing them that the Royals are right up there with them and can compete with them.

In order to improve his skills Jaxon just wants to keep practicing and getting better at everything throughout the season.

Jaxon’s recruitment time is over. He has recently signed with the University of Regina Rams. At this moment, Jaxon is unsure whether he’s going into engineering or business.

“The recruitment process was pretty simple for me as I really wanted to play for the U of R Rams,” Jaxon replied. “Since I was a kid, I have always wanted to play for them so it was a fairly easy choice for me.”

Jaxon is really looking forward to being at the University of Regina, he said, “I am really looking forward to being able to keep playing after high school as not everyone gets that opportunity.”

Once he becomes a Ram, Jaxon expects that he will have to work very hard at school and football because university life will be very challenging and a big adjustment.

Jaxon thinks that he will be able to adjust to the university level if he keeps his focus on working hard and by prioritizing his time well. In the offseason, Jaxon will be very committed to getting stronger, faster and improving all aspects of his game.

As a teammate, Jaxon would say that one of his greatest strengths is that he never gives up on a play.

The most influential person in Jaxon’s life is his Dad because he’s the one that got Jaxon involved in football. Jaxon’s Dad also played football with the Rams, and Jaxon has always looked up to his father because of that.
