Hunter Freeman is joining FC Motown, the experienced right back bringing a wealth of experience in MLS and Europe as well as the NASL to his new team. FC Motown is based out of Morris County in northern New Jersey.
A veteran right back who helped the US qualify for the Olympics in 2008, Freeman split his last few seasons between Miami FC and the New York Cosmos. He also spent several seasons in MLS, where he helped key the New York Red Bulls to an MLS Cup appearance in 2007, the organization’s only appearance in a MLS Cup.
Freeman brings a wealth of experience to FC Motown, which this year is set for its first season in the National Premier Soccer League.
“It is exciting to come back to New Jersey and join an ambitious team like FC Motown,” Freeman said. “Their Lamar Hunt Cup qualification was a huge factor in the decision. I feel that I can lend my experience from the Final 8 run with Miami FC last year to help us achieve results.”
In addition to being a solid defender and aggressive in individual defense and marking, Freeman is also an offensive asset. He moves well into the attacking end and is known for his long, overlapping runs. Freeman is also a specialist at set pieces.
“Having an experienced player like Hunter is big for our club as we grow,” said FC Motown head coach Sacir Hot. “Not only does he help by bringing big experiences in MLS, Europe and on the international level, he also will help our squad immensely by being a veteran leader and an example to follow. He’s a true master craftsman of this game.”
FC Motown will take on the NY Red Bulls U-23 at Drew University on Wednesday, May 9 at 7 p.m. For a complete schedule of games, click here.
