Eltoro Looking To Finish With A Bang

Auburn senior linebacker Eltoro Freeman talks about facing Georgia and finishing his career out strong, including video.

Auburn, Ala.—With 19 tackles in the last two games Auburn senior linebacker Eltoro Freeman has put together arguably the best run of play in his career on the Plains, including an 11-tackle performance in a win over Ole Miss. Facing Georgia this Saturday with just three regular season games left "The Bull" said he's excited about the opportunity to take on one of the league's best offenses.

"We are excited," Freeman said. "This is one of the oldest rivalries in the South. We know Georgia is going to be a great football team like they always are. It's going to be a great football game. We're all excited.

"Their offensive line is huge," he added. "They've got a great back, great receivers, and a great quarterback. They are awesome. They can do a lot of things. They can throw it and run it. They are a good football team. We're going to be ready for them. It's going to be a great football game."

Entering Auburn out of Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College and Benjamin Russell High as one of the country's top linebacker prospects, Freeman has become the playmaker for the Tigers on defense. That's something Jeffrey Whitaker said has been big from a confidence standpoint and Freeman said for him it's just part of what he hopes is a strong finish to his Auburn career.

"I haven't done it yet because it's not over," Freeman said. "I think I'm being very productive, but my number one goal is to finish out with a bang. That's what my focus is going in every day, not only for me but to help my team win. I'm one of the seniors so I have to lead by example to help my team win. That has been my goal."
