“He’s A Quiet Assassin.”

November 14th, 2009

Back in his college town of Manhattan,Kan., Josh Freeman is still a BMOC despite not being on campus.

The Manhattan (Kan.) Mercury has a feature story on Freeman about his first NFL start last week, a victorious one at that. Freeman’s teammates seem to love him, including his former roommate, rookie wide receiver Sammie Stroughter.

Maybe some will recognize the author’s name?

Being his roommate, I know where his mind is,” Stroughter said. “He’s a quiet assassin. He doesn’t get rattled and he loves to play the game.

“The one thing about him is from the OTAs he was taking charge. He was going to start. He had that mindset even from rookie camp. He prepared for that every day, that he would be a starter. His standards are so high, if you ask him about his performance, he expects more.”

The cool thing about Freeman is he doesn’t seem to be stuck on himself. Freeman seemed more concerned about becoming a better quarterback than he was reveling in the win. Joe loves the kid’s attitude, or more importantly, the lack thereof.
