Former Bruce Trojan RB Richard Freelon had a large cheering section last Saturday when his Jacksonville State University Gamecocks upset Ole Miss 49-48 in double-overtime.
The Bruce football team attended the game holding up letters in the end zone promoting Freelon for Heisman. Elizabeth and Kathryn Hathorne, of Bruce, pictured, were among the many Freelon fans in the stands with signs of their own.
Freelon’s Gamecocks rallied from a 31-10 halftime deficit to defeat Ole Miss in the debut of Rebel QB Jeremiah Masoli, who transferred from Oregon.
Jacksonville State is scheduled to host UT-Chattanooga this Saturday. Ole Miss travels to Tulane.
