A native of Hazel Park, Michigan, Fraser was a Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA) state wrestling champion. In college he was a two-time All-American wrestler, wrestling at the University of Michigan. Fraser's gold medal was the first ever Olympic gold in Greco-Roman wrestling for the United States. The next night following Fraser's gold medal performance, Jeff Blatnick won a second gold medal for the U.S. Greco-Roman Olympic team. Fraser served as coach of the U.S. Greco Roman team from 1997 to 2014. Rulon Gardner who was a gold medalist at the 2000 Olympic Games, credits Fraser's instruction as a large part of his wrestling success. The year Fraser competed at the Olympics in 1984, the United States won 9 gold medals in wrestling, the most at a single Olympics in American wrestling history.
