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.

    Performance of the Week: Northville's Helena McLellan

    June 2, 2023

    Helena McLellanHelena McLellan ♦ Northville
    Junior ♦ Soccer

    McLellan, a standout midfielder, scored twice in Northville's 3-0 win over Belleville on May 22 to clinch the overall Kensington Lakes Activities Association championship. The Mustangs earned the opportunity to play in that game by claiming the KLAA West title with an 11-0-3 record, and they're 15-0-4 heading into Saturday's Division 1 District Final against Livonia Stevenson. 

    An accomplished club soccer player, McLellan chose to compete for her high school team this spring for the first time and helped Northville to a No. 2 ranking at the end of the regular season after the Mustangs finished Division 1 runner-up a year ago. Belleville was ranked No. 8 in the final coaches association poll, and McLellan followed up her goals against the Tigers with another in Northville's 3-1 District Semifinal win over Farmington Hills Mercy on Wednesday.
