LE ROY — Family, friends and former athletes who played under hall of fame high school football and track coach Bill Freeman gathered Saturday to dedicate Freeman’s mural, which adorns the Assembly of God church in downtown Le Roy. Cutting the ribbon for the event was Jennifer Freeman Liles, Freeman’s daughter. Freeman coached teams in Le Roy, Osawatomie and Lawrence to a combined eight state titles in football. He also coached two Lawrence High School track teams to state championships before retiring in 1990. Freeman, who died in 2015, is a 2014 inductee into the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame.
