The 6-foot-8, 275-pound senior swept the shot put, discus and javelin events at the Class 6A state meet this past season, leading the Mustangs to a second-place finish as a team. Freeland’s winning throw of 64 feet, 6 inches in the shot ranked No. 5 in the nation among prep competitors in 2019 at the time of his selection. His personal-best in the javelin, a distance of 188-4, ranked No. 82.
Freeland has maintained a 3.79 GPA in the classroom. He has signed a national letter of intent to compete on an athletic scholarship at Brigham Young University beginning this fall.
An All-State selection in track & field, football and basketball, Freeland was the Utah High School Athletic Association Spirit of Sport winner in 2018. He helped found a non-profit organization that helps students living in disadvantaged socio-economic conditions achieve post-secondary opportunities in athletics, and he has volunteered locally as a youth football coach.
