Freddie was born June 10, 1927, in Bryant, the son of Fay Rowland-Prickett and Edward Wesley Prickett. He grew up with a love for baseball as the third baseman for the Bryant Rebels. The son of a farmer, he learned what it meant to put in a hard day's work at an early age. He graduated from Bryant High School in 1945 as the salutatorian. He then chose to attend Draughan's Business School before returning home to take care of the family-owned Prickett Dairy Inc. as vice president.

When the word â€śteamâ€ť makes its way into the brain, what is the first definition that comes to mind?
Is it a group of athletes? What about a band of brothers or sisters?
What if someone told you there was a group of seniors on the Harmony Grove senior girls basketball team that had more than most teams could ever hope for?
Of course, everyone wants to win it all in their last year. That is a given. But not winning it all and knowing that a team has given it its all in every game of the final season speaks louder than a title or any hardware could ever scream.
