SAC Sound-off: Meet Owosso's Matt Freeman

April 11, 2012

Matt Freeman is a big part of the Owosso football program -- he's 6-foot-2 and 270 pounds and made his all-league team last season -- and will continue to be a big part of the MHSAA's Student Advisory Council as a senior next fall.  He's one of eight juniors on the council; members are selected at the end of their sophomores years and serve two-year terms.

Matt Freeman, Owosso junior

  • Sports: Football, basketball, golf
  • Non-sports activities: Hunting, farming, drummer, theater
  • Favorite class: Weight lifting
  • Must-see TV: ESPN SportCenter
  • One shining moment: Coming back from 15 down to beat Corunna in basketball this season.
  • What’s next: Hopefully, college football. If not, then a small college, and coming home on weekends. Working with my hands – nothing behind a desk.
  • My favorite part of game day is: ... at school, knowing most of the people you see never get the opportunity to be on a team, and knowing you are lucky to be on the team you are on.

    The 5-foot-6 guard capped her high school career at Breslin Center over the weekend with team highs of 24 points and four steals in Thursday’s 57-26 Division 3 Semifinal win over Hart and the team-leading 19 points and four assists in the 59-43 win over Blissfield on Saturday that clinched the Huskies their first MHSAA Finals championship in girls basketball.

    Finkbeiner played all but four minutes of 64 total over the two games, and she made a combined 15 of her 27 shots from the floor and 9 of 10 free throw attempts, plus four 3-pointers in the Final. She had entered the season’s final week averaging 17.1 points, 3.5 assists and 4.8 steals per game and in February became the program’s all-time leading scorer breaking the previous record of 1,302. A standout in multiple sports, she’s committed to continue playing softball after high school at Madonna University. Her basketball team finished 26-3 this winter.
