Major: Biology and Psychology
Reflections and thank yous: “I told myself that this year I was going to try and do everything and anything I’ve ever wanted to. And so I did, participating in things I would never have if it weren’t for the school staff and my friends and how they’ve helped me grow as a person to be okay with trying new things. And how accepting the school is in general. I would have loved to say a proper goodbye to everyone who has helped me become who I am, but this will do. Thank you to everyone who has invested their time in helping me in any way. I will miss this place and all it has done for me!!”
Christian Freas-Baseball-Kutztown
Positions; Centerfielder, Pitcher
Major: Psychology
Athletic endeavor: “Pushing for the big leagues” after 4-year sports career at Norristown
Reflections and thank yous: “I had a great 3 to 4 years with plenty of great guys. We had a good run. Not only did I learn to play for the next guy, I learned to be a stronger leader. This year would have been our year to blow up. For all the young guys, keep your head up and don’t take anything for granted because it does go by fast. I’m going to miss the Norristown Area Baseball Team. Thank you to the coaches for helping me throughout the years. Even though he’s not with our team anymore I’d like to thank coach Brett for being my mentor for my first years in this program. I know the new coaches will do great with the younger kids. Thank you.”
