Mixon headed to Jan. 4 bowl

Freedom High football player Joe Mixon, seen here Nov. 22 in a North Coast Section playoff game against Pittsburg, has a big week ahead of him. Mixon is competing in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Jan. 4 in San Antonio, and there are events planned for all of the players in the days leading up to the game. Mixon, one of the most highly recruited players in the country, has said he'll announce which university he'll attend during the telecast of the game. Mixon's finalists are Oklahoma, Wisconsin and UCLA.
