My deepest condolences to the Solomon family and friends. It is terrible to loose a loved one to death. May you draw close to the God of all comfort Ps 145:18.

As a University of Tampa alumnus, I met Freddie several times at school and watched him QB the Spartans in some very exciting games. We had some good laughs at the post office when someone would call HIS name and we both turned around. A true gentleman who will be missed by so many. My prayers go out to his family. RIP

I had the opportunity to work with this wonderful role model for our inner city youth while working with Hillsborough County 4-H. He would stop by our office to tell us where we needed to organize new clubs for "his kids." He taught the young people that they could be whatever they wanted to be as long as they were willing to work hard. He had high standards for all of them and they loved him for it. Freddie, often would drop by the office with a check to send kids from the inner city to 4-H Camp. Many of these kids had never been out of Tampa. Freddie had a heart of goal and never wanted recogniton for the things that he did for others. I feel sure God looked down at all the wonderful opportunities he had made possibe for the kids and said "Well done good and faithful servant, it is time for you to come home." I will always remember Freddie and hearing him say as he would leave our office, "Stay Sweet." I am so sad that my friend has left us on earth and will look forward to some day seeing him in Heaven. My heart goes out to his wife, Dee, who he always refered to as his girlfriend when he gave donations. I know her heart is heavy and can only hope as she reads what people are saying about her husband will in some small way ease the pain a little. My prayers are with her.

Raw talent wise, the greatest football player South Carolina has ever produced, and a humble servant of his people. I will be speaking at Frank Small's foru year anniversary memorial service which will take place right after Freddie's today in Sumter,SC. The two were best buddies at Sumter High and at the University of Tampa, and continued to play football together there. They had nicknames for each other...Freddie's nickname was "Smoke" and Frank's nickname was "Dick".

I met Freddie at University of Tampa, when a few of my homeboys from Tarpon Springs(spongers) joined him in 1972 as a Spartan. I used to skip school to see Freddie practice I was 15y/o at the time He told me in that very soft spoken voice of his. That I could come to the games& see him play, if I went to school made good grades he would pay for my ticket. At this time he was the MAN of TU. He had the effect of getting you to do what was right and doing your Best at it, &With a smile. He always followed the rules and want you to do the same.It was not just about football with him. He would say you need to have an education something you can always fall back on cause, you can't play football all your life. Granted I am female.I just loved the way he so sweetly played the game, He was Fabulous Freddie,Fast Freddie, Honest Freddie,& Smiling Freddie.He was all he could be, and that's all he wanted from the next person.His game said it all, but when Freddie spoke everyone listen. He was soft spoken but his word came over loud, clear, and meaningful. He always smiled and you would to if you ever had contact with him. At this time of loss, May you all know, His Compassion, His Grace, and His Love.May the love of God surround his Family during this time of sorrow. You're in my thoughts and prayers.He is the Greatest and will always be, cause he touch so many lives in his crossing, Thus his passing for ever living on.
