Freeman to compete on international stage

...
Crosby native Jeremy Freeman is walking-talking proof that dynamite comes in small packages.Competing for Sam Houston State, Freeman captured the NCAA power-lifting title at 122 pounds this spring and has been selected to represent the United States in an international meet in France this September.He accomplished this after taking two years off from competition while attending Lee College.
"I just thank God for giving me my talent," Freeman said."I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
In high school Freeman played football, basketball and ran track for the Cougars.His size kept him from competing at the level that he desired.Discouraged, he found his way into competitive power lifting.
"My brother had been a big-time running back at Crosby and I couldn't live up to it," Freeman said.
...
In competition, Freeman was undefeated his junior and senior year.Only a disqualification his junior year kept him from being a two-time state champion.
While taking classes at Lee College for two years, Freeman continued to train and once he arrived on campus at Sam Houston, he resumed his career.As a member of the Bearkat team, he won titles at the University of Texas, Texas A&M and an international meet leading up to the NCAA Championships.At the meet in Killeen, Freeman lifted a total of 1,050 pounds.He squatted 380 pounds, benched 240 and dead lifted 418 to win by a margin of 30 pounds.
"I didn't expect to win nationals," Freeman said."It just happened so fast.It was a total surprise."
As a national champion, Freeman was nominated to compete in France in a meet during the first week of September.The opportunity to compete on the world stage is just one of several firsts for Freeman.
"The farthest place that I have ever been is Louisiana," Freeman said."I have never even been on a plane."
Leading up to the meet, Freeman will be training as well as balancing schoolwork and a job.He is majoring in kinesiology and working towards a minor in special education.His mother Lounis Freeman is planning fundraisers to help cover the cost of the competition in France.Those looking to help can call her at 936-776-7414 or call Jeremy at 936-776-7321.
