The Brooks County Trojan family has endured a lot this summer, as three of their athletes were lost in a tragic car accident. But I can't think of a head football coach better suited to lead the rest of the Trojan family through the pain of the losses to holding their heads up and honoring Jicarre Watkins, Shawn Waters, and Johnnie Parker the best way they know how...by giving it all they've got on the football field.

 

Maurice Freeman spent his playing days as a Brooks County Trojan himself. Now, he's the state-title-winning ringleader of the Trojans as their head coach.

 

Coach Freeman knows better than anyone else what Football Fridays mean to the town of Quitman. Watch below to hear how he knows Quitman is head over heels for Brooks County Football.
