"Obviously, Talon Fisher possesses all of the physical attributes we look for as football coaches. He is big, long, athletic, strong and he plays with a high motor," says his varsity coach Jason Krause.
Talon also competed in one year of track for the Indians.
A good student who is active in community service, he has committed to play football next season at the United States Naval Academy. His favorite athlete is Johnny Manzell, favorite entertainer is Adam Sandler, favorite book is Power, favorite movie is Air and most-like-to-meet is Michael Jordan.
COACH'S QUOTE – "Over the last four years, I have watched this young man represent the Fairfield football program as the perfect ambassador. He is conscientious in the classroom and in the hallways. He is dominant in the weight room and the playing field. He has handled all of his success with grace and humility. In short, Talon Fisher is who we all want our players to be, in fact, Talon Fisher is who we all want our sons to be."
