Jeremy played for the Lions Club team in the MYBL as an 8 and 9 year old and was one of the Junior Boys Division’s best players. He would later star at Massaponax High School where he scored 1,041 career points and averaged 23 points per game in his senior year. He earned a basketball scholarship to Army, a member of the Patriot League.
At 6’4”, Jeremy plays small forward for Army and got the starting nod in last Saturday’s nationally-televised loss to Navy. Jeremy had 5 points in the game and hit a 3-pointer.
Jeremy, a junior, recently scored a career-high 11 points in a win over New Hampshire. He made all five of his shot attempts in the game.
