Scotty McCreery Expressing Admiration, Support For Missy Franklin
Scotty McCreery is expressing his admiration for Olympic swimmer Missy Franklin. He says via Twitter that he appreciates that the teen athlete "wants to stay in high school even tho she's an olympian." He adds that high school was "the best 4 years" of his life "for sure." The singer also shows his support, tweeting, "We're rooting for you," and "Keep it up!" McCreery can appreciate Franklin's plans, because they're similar to his own. He also made a conscious effort to complete his education in a traditional manner, even though he'd won on "American Idol" during his junior year. Scotty just graduated this past June, and he plans to continue with his formal academic education. He'll be one of the incoming freshmen at North Carolina State University this fall.
