Successfully toeing four field goals and four conversion kicks earned Josh Frewin Most Valuable Player honors and Greenville College a 46-39 football win over Martin Luther College.
Frewin, a 6-foot, 160-pound junior at Greenville, is a 2010 Payson High School graduate who booted the winning extra point in the Longhorns’ dramatic 34-33 double-overtime win in the 2008 state championship final.
After graduating from PHS, Frewin took his kicking act to Greenville, a small, Christian college in Illinois near St. Louis.
In Greenville’s win vs. Martin Luther on Oct. 13 in New Ulm, Minn., Frewin successfully kicked field goals of 18, 23, 20 and 31 yards. The final kick was his longest of the season. He also was 4-for-5 on extra points, resulting in a total of 16 points.
For the season, Frewin has played in all six of Greenville’s games, successfully kicking 6 of 10 field goals and 22 of 24 extra points.
Frewin’s credentials are second overall in the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference, a Division III alignment.
In addition to kicking field goals and extra points, Frewin handles all of the team’s kickoff responsibilities.
Academically at Greenville, the former Longhorn studies a double major in sports management and Spanish.
Last year, he was one of eight members of the Panther team to be named to the UMAC All-Academic team.
