Its a race against the clock for Jennifer Freemans latest homage to her father, the late coaching luminary Bill Freeman.
The elder Freeman was one of the most successful high school football and track coaches in Kansas history, having racked up eight state titles on the gridiron in Le Roy, Osawatomie and Lawrence, while winning two other state track and field titles at Lawrence.
He coached for 35 years before hanging up his whistle and settling down in Le Roy, where he became a banker and was town mayor.
