Morale hits new high
After a warm start to October, a fall chill is in the air. But one would never know that inside the walls of Freedom HS. That’s because the Freedom Patriots’ football team is red-hot. The inspiring group of young men were winners of nine consecutive games, forever cementing this season into school history.
“It really means a lot, to start where we were [my] freshman year, as a good team, but not the best. This year shows improvement as a football team, but in the community as well,” said Tristan Wheeler, senior linebacker and tight end.
