Frawley is currently maintaining a 3.07 GPA as a biological sciences major. He will be applying for dental school next fall.

During his academic career, Frawley earned honors during the Spring 2017 semester for carrying a 3.50 GPA. He was named to the 2018 America East Winter-Spring Honor Roll.


Frawley is a two-time team captain, as selected by his teammates in both 2020 and 2021. He has also been a member of the UMBC Lacrosse Leadership Council for the last for years. The council meets weekly with the coaching staff and sets the agenda regarding team issues.

He is a part of the team’s “Big Brother” program, teaming an upperclassman with a freshman for the past three seasons. Frawley received outstanding feedback from his mentees for his role.

Coach Moran described Frawley as the “model student-athlete, from his humility to his work ethic.” He earned the team’s GRIT award in 2020 for the core value of integrity.


Frawley is an active member of the team’s “Mustache Madness” fund-raising campaign for the Headstrong Foundation.

In 2018 and 2019, he was one of seven Retrievers to serve on Team Impact and work with Aiden, an 11-year old with kidney disease and a resulting cancer diagnosis. Team IMPACT is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to improve the quality of life for children facing life-threatening and chronic illnesses through the power of team. Team IMPACT children are drafted on to college athletic teams in close proximity to where they live and in effect, become official members of the team from draft day through to graduation.

During his freshman year, Frawley volunteered for a day with coaching and mentoring in UMBC’s initiative at Harlem Lacrosse. The mission of Harlem Lacrosse is to empower the children who are most at risk for academic decline and dropout to rise above their challenges and reach their full potential. Harlem Lacrosse inspires children to dream about tomorrow while working hard on the field and in the classroom today.


Frawley was a 2019 America East first team selection, the Retrievers’ first attackman to earn that honor since Matt Gregoire in 2014. During that same season, he was selected to the America East All-Tournament Team and has also recieved America East All-Rookie Team honors during his career (2017). He currently ranks 29th in the nation with points in 27 consecutive games, entering the Spring of 2021.

In the shortened 2020 season, Frawley tied his career high by scoring six goals in a win over High Point. He earned America East Offensive Player of the Week for his efforts.

In 2019, Frawleey led the America East and ranked 21st in the nation in goals per game. His 46 total scores tied David Quattrini for third-most in a single season in school history. He capped the 2019 season by scoring six goals on eight shots vs No.1 Penn State during the NCAA Round of 16.

Throughout his career, he has scored four or more goals in seven games. Frawley became the 35th Retriever to reach the 100-point plateau, with 85 goals and 17 assists. His 85 goals are tied for 19th on the school’s all-time list and his 102 points are tied for 33rd.
