Heart of a Champion: The Life and Legacy of Coach Bill Freeman by Jennifer Freeman and Tina Wendling

I purchased this book from Amazon to read. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Heart of A Champion: The Life and Legacy of Coach Bill Freeman by Jennifer Freeman with Tina Wendling, Foreword by Lynn Dickey. Bill Freeman was a man that coached High School Football and Track, he owned a bank and farmed 3000 acres in Leroy, Kansas, in his short 81 years. He fought for state championship titles, students to make higher grades and succeed in life, manage a successful bank, raising corn, hunting arrowheads, quadruple bypass surgery twice, prostate cancer, only to succumb to the effects of Alzheimer’s disease in 2015. This devastating disease was something he fought as long as his strong body would allow. While looking back at his life his daughter Jennifer stands to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s as well as preserve his legacy. My favorite part of the entire book was the section in Chapter 2 called Other Freemanisms. I think that we can all relate to someone in our life that has his own way of saying things. Bill Freeman’s way of saying things stuck with so many people not just while he was their coach but later into their own lives. If you love football, know someone who coaches, or just curious to know more grab this book on Amazon today!
