Record-Setting Performance Nets Liberty-Eylau’s Ke’Mon Freeman ETSN.fm + DQ Offensive Player of the Week Honors
The Liberty-Eylau offense was clicking on all cylinders to say the least last Friday night. And the Leopards weren't necessarily the most friendliest of hosts to fellow Texarkana combatant Arkansas High.
L-E drummed the Razorbacks, 66-21, at Harris Field -- on the Texas-side of the state line -- and Leopards senior quarterback Ke'Mon Freeman was the ring-leader.
Freeman highlighted his school's record-setting total of 835 yards of total offense with 494 of those and six touchdowns, earning ETSN.fm + Dairy Queen Offensive Player of the Week honors, following in the footsteps of last week's recipient, Kordell Rodgers of Lufkin.
The dual-threat Leopards QB, who has FBS offers from Arkansas State, North Texas, and SMU, and significant Power 5 interest as a safety, completed 15 of 26 passes for 317 yards and five touchdowns over the weekend. He also added 177 yards and a touchdown on 17 rushing attempts.
In three games this season, Freeman (6-0, 205) has thrown for 909 yards with eight touchdowns and only one interception, while rushing for 331 yards and five TDs.
Liberty-Eylau, which has the bulk of its impact players back from last season's Class 4A Division I state quarterfinalist, is averaging 53.3 points per game in 2015, and has won consecutive games following its season-opening 50-45 loss at third-ranked and defending 4A Division II champ Gilmer.
And while Freeman is driving the engine, there have been plenty of complimentary pieces for the Leopards' offense in the early going. A few of them had monster performances last week as well.
Senior receiver Thurman Morbley caught eight passes for 220 yards and two touchdowns, fellow receiver Decorian Meadows had 63 receiving yards and two TD's, and running back Lamont Byrd led L-E's 518-yard rushing attack with 191 yards and three scores on 25 carries.
Liberty-Eylau (2-1) travels to Tatum (0-2) this Friday night.
