DHS Quarterback Club gets new presidentBy Matt Cole Published 11:52am Thursday, October 4, 2012
Dauphin’s wife is Carrie Anne Dauphin, and English teacher at DHS. They have two sons, Matthew and Benjamin, who are in ninth grade and eighth grade, respectively, and both are involved in football.
Freeman, who has been president of the Quarterback Club for six years said he has really enjoyed getting to know and work with all of the young people and their parents over the years.
“I have seen a lot of good people come together for a good cause,” he said. “A lot of parents have come together to support this program.”
He said when he took over as president, the club was bringing in around $20,000 per year, and now they average about $60,000 per year.
“There have been a lot of folks doing a lot of work to get us to that point,” he said. “I am not the only one who has done this. I was just the one out in front with the title of president.”
Freeman said it takes about $1,200 to put just one player in a complete uniform for football, so it takes a lot of money and a lot of work to run a program.
Freeman said that he appreciates the coaches and everyone who has helped with the club over the years.
“Demopolis has great coaches who teach more than football to the kids, and they do it while having a winning program,” he said. “I want to thank everyone who has been involved since I took over. It takes a lot of folks to make it work.”
