Interest Increasing For Versatile Athlete

Versatility is important to some college football staffs; Jeremy Meyers has the ability to play on both sides of the ball and will spend the summer attending camps and junior days

The 6-2, 205-pound Jeremy Meyers finished his junior season with over 1,200 yards passing and 850 yards rushing from the quarterback position at St. Michael's high. The dual threat athlete has received letters from programs in Louisiana and across the Southeast.

"I've received letters from LSU, Auburn, Notre Dame, Clemson, Texas A & M, Tulane, Louisiana, ULM and Louisiana Tech," said Meyers. "I've visited LSU on junior day and Texas A & M spring practice on the March 28th."

While some programs like Jeremy Meyers at the quarterback position, others think he has the athletic ability to play the safety position in college. Does Jeremy have a preference in playing either position at the next level?

"No, not really," Jeremy replied."It doesn't matter to me as long as I get the opportunity to play division one football."

Meyers, like some of his teammates at St. Michaels plays baseball as well. Does he want to be a dual sport athlete in college?

"I've thought about it, but it's not something I have to do in college," stated Jeremy. "I know it would be difficult to play multiple sports in college, especially two sports that overlap in the spring."

Jeremy knows a little something about UL's football program, as former teammate Evan Ruiz is a current Ragin'Cajun.

"He's come by school several times and spoke about playing football at UL," Meyers said. "He really is enjoying his time at UL and playing football. I plan on attending their football camp this summer."
