Personal: Fredette was paralyzed from the chest down when he fell head-first from his dirt bike – he was a freshman in college. While in recovery, he and his mother sat down and watched the documentary “Murderball”. He was instantly inspired to play wheelchair rugby....playing poker, water skiing, playing video games, weight lifting and boating.
