Checking in with Kurt Freytag

As Carmel's season continues to progress through the Indiana Class 5A State Tournamnet, the Greyhounds RB Kurt Freytag has contniued to garner interest from several teams, but he isn't planning on making any moves just yet.

Sitting at 11-1 on the season and moving on to the regional round of the Indiana Class 5A (largest) state tournament, Kurt Freytag is enjoying the ride and he is not about to start worrying about the future.

"College is a very important decision in my life," Kurt said. "So I am in no hurry to make a decision. I will most likely decide a week or two after the high school season is completed."

In the meantime, Freytag, who has offers from Ball State, Central Michigan and Eastern Michigan, will focus on his season at hand.

"So far our season as a team couldn't be going any better," Freytag said. "We just won against Lafayette Harrison at home for our football programs 22nd sectional title (a state record) coming to a season record of 11-1. Next week we have Ft. Wayne Snider and they are always a good opponent. It's also going great because the seniors are really bonding well this year and coming together to create a great team atmosphere. Personally I'm not really a stat kinda guy. My season as a player is going great because I am becoming a better player each week."

While his senior campaign has been going so well, not much has been happening on the recruiting front.

Recruiting is going pretty good so far," Kurt said. "No new offers, but I am getting a lot of attention from Purdue aside from the three other great schools that have offered."

So what does Freytag say about the Cardinals and their thoughts on his future position?.

"Ball State is recruiting me as a Half-Back type of position," he said. "I played that mostly my junior year because (Ball State Fr. Walk On) Aaron King got a bulk of the carries in the 2007 season. They saw my film from my junior year and thought I'd fit perfectly into their offense."

So, what will the deciding factors be in Kurt's decision.

"The biggest factor for my decision will be the comfort with staff and university," Kurt said. "Education is very important as well, but I really want to surround myself with great people. I would love to go to school with a fellow teammate, Joe Rippe (safety), he is also getting looks from MAC schools and Purdue."
