Cowboys’ Travis Frederick: Rookie distractions gone, focus on football


The Dallas Cowboys shocked everyone when they drafted Wisconsin center Travis Frederick at the end of the first round in the 2013 draft. Frederick had a solid 2013 season and proved to be worth his draft pick and says he thinks there are less distractions heading into his sophomore season and that will allow him to focus on football.

“Anything that you do outside of football is a distraction. As many distractions as you can eliminate will help you become a better player,” Frederick said, via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “The more you can focus on watching film, the more you can focus on working out, that’s going to help you become a better player. It’ll be nice to really just know what I’m doing and be able to go out and do those things.”

Frederick added: “Your rookie year, I think your biggest challenge is not knowing what’s coming next, even from one game to the next, or how to handle practice on this day and this week. But after having been through it, I think it kind of helps you prepare for that and know what you need to be able to do for the next week and kind of that grind of putting it all together.”
