LE ROY — There wasn’t a big secret to his success as a coach, according Bill Freeman.
“I always had good players. They had talent and I was able to get them to work for me,” Freeman told the Register in a telephone interview Wednesday from his Le Roy home.
Work for him they did. Freeman guided football teams to eight state titles at three different schools in three different classifications. His 36-year career record of 242-81-3 included head coaching stints at Baxter Springs, Parker Rural, Nickerson, Le Roy, Osawatomie and Lawrence high schools.
