Former Coach Calls New Notre Dame DC Marcus Freeman "Student of the Game"

January 14, 2021

It seems like the pipeline from Wayne High School to Notre Dame is already open, at least for coaches.

Now, Wayne head coach Roosevelt Mukes will look to open it to his players.

A Wayne graduate himself, Mukes was an assistant coach when both Mickens and Freeman were high-schoolers.
