Former Callaway Cavalier KeShun Freeman has succeeded at every level of football.

He was an all-state player at Callaway, and he was a four-year starter on the defensive line at Georgia Tech.

Now, Freeman is ready to give the NFL a try.

Freeman has signed with the Baltimore Ravens as a non-drafted free agent, and he’ll be a part of the team’s rookie mini-camp next week.

Freeman is attempting to follow in the footsteps of two other prominent local players who have found a home in the NFL after not getting drafted.

LaGrange High graduate Wesley Woodyard signed with the Denver Broncos in 2008 as an undrafted free agent, and he is still in the league.

Woodyard, in fact, is coming off one of the best seasons of his NFL career when he led the Tennessee Titans in tackles.

Woodyard is heading into his 11th season in the NFL.

Quan Bray, who played at Callaway and Troup, wasn’t drafted in 2015 and he signed with the Indianapolis Colts.

Bray has found a home in the NFL as an elite return-man, and he signed with the Buffalo Bills in January.

Freeman, after helping lead Callaway to the state semifinals in 2013, was a starter by the third game of his freshman season at Georgia Tech.

Freeman started every game during the rest of his Georgia Tech career.

While Freeman was a defensive lineman at Georgia Tech, he could get a look at linebacker with Baltimore.

During Georgia Tech’s pro day, Freeman worked extensively at linebacker with scouts from different NFL teams in attendance.
