Scholar Athlete of the Week 1/17: Bishop Kearney's Redell Freeman | News
Bishop Kearney senior Redell Freeman carries a 90 average and has taken four APs. “I actually finished school last year with all my courses, so I ran out of classes, so I took AP classes to fill my schedule up.”
Redell is good at school. “I’m not going to lie about it. I have my parents always pushing me though they don’t let me get under.”
He hopes to pursue a career as a pharmacist. He has his priorities straight and at the same time, never takes his off the ball.
Redell has played varsity basketball since the 8th grade. He runs track in the spring to stay in shape.
Redell and the Bishop Kearney Kings have gotten a lot of attention this season. Two younger players on the team have already been heavily recruited by big Division I programs. Redell takes his role as captain seriously.” You can go anywhere without your grades, so I try to tell them that you can be the best athletes in the world, but if you don’t have your grades then what can you do.”
As the team leader, Redell is also getting his shape of exposure, being on a high profile team, but he remains grounded and focused on the future. “I try to not let it go to my head. It's a win or a loss and try to not take it too hard just learn from and we have another game to go.
