Arts and Sciences Adviser to be Inducted into Athens Athletic Hall of Fame

Posted on: March 12, 2019

Congratulations to Scott Freeney ’97 on his induction into the Athens (Ga.) Athletic Hall of Fame. A four-year letter winner and starter at linebacker and defensive tackle, he helped lead Syracuse football to victory in the Fiesta Bowl (1992), the Gator Bowl (1996) and the Liberty Bowl (1996). Today, the Athens native brings that same winning mentality to academic and career advising in Arts and Sciences. “Scott’s extraordinary career as a student athlete, followed by his professional success, is inspiring to all students,” says Steve Schaffling, assistant dean of student success.
