Baldwin High School basketball standout William Freeman has officially signed to play with Life University. Williams shared his decision with his family, friends and supporters in a public signing ceremony last week.
“I am a little nervous,” said the 6’1” guard about his upcoming transition.
The 2021 graduate may be timid, but he is not afraid to shine on the court. Freeman has won several awards during his time with the high school including all-county player of the year, the Varsity Basketball Academic Award, as well as being named captain of the team.
Freeman shared that his recent visit to the school is what helped to shape his decision.
“I went for a tryout,” he said. “Compared to other schools that I have visited, I liked the campus, so I knew it would be a good fit for me.”
Freeman is pursuing a degree in science and exercise science. After graduation, he wants to pursue a coaching career. Freeman said that, without his mother and his coaches, this accomplishment would not be possible.
“I want to thank my mom for always helping through my ups and downs,” he said. “I want to thank my coaches for guiding me through this path, especially coaches Allen and Buck Harris. William Burnett has also helped me greatly along the way.”
Classes at Life University will resume in September.
