Get to Know Your Orange Man: #20, WR Ethan Fischler

The California native takes on another year of CNY weather.

NCAA Football: Central Michigan at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Ethan Fischler

Position: Wide receiver

Year: (Redshirt) Freshman

Height: 6’0”

Weight: 182

Hometown: Orinda, Calif.

High School: Miramonte

2018 stats: Ethan redshirted this past season — his first on campus.

2019 projections: Going to be hard for Fischler to crack the wide receiver depth chart for the Syracuse Orange, so if we see the walk-on at all, it’ll be on special teams.

How’d he get here?: He was offered a preferred walk-on spot shortly before National Signing Day in 2018, and was happy to come aboard.

What’d recruiting sites say?: Nothing.

Money quote: Hopefully he provides a similar quote at some point in his Syracuse career. This one came after Miramonte came back from 18 points down to win 31-30 his senior year. Via the Mercury News

“This was easily the craziest and most unbelievable game I’ve been a part of. We never gave up and hats off to El Cerrito for a great, well-fought game.”

Tweets of wonder: How about an Instagram post of wonder on this one?

What movie would Dino recommend for him?: Ethan Hawke played Jake in 2001’s “Training Day” with Denzel Washington. Would bet at least a few quotes from the film have been tossed around the Syracuse locker room since Dino arrived.

Interesting nugget o’interest: Though Fischler comes from California, he was born in New York City. So heading to SU was much more of a homecoming than a cross country trek to an unknown land.
