Versatile Wiggins does it all for Northeast-Macon

Northeast-Macon Senior Jeremy Wiggins is the starting safety for the Raiders (9-2), but his big play ability is being used all over the field on Friday nights and all over the school throughout the year.</p>

"Jeremy has given a lot to the Northeast program over the years," says Northeast Head Coach Carror Wright. "He's a four-sport letterman. Not only is he a solid football player, he also plays baseball, basketball, and runs track, so he not only means a lot to our football team, but our athletic department as a whole." While Wiggins has excelled at every sport he's played at Northeast, it's football the three-year letterman loves most.

"I enjoy playing baseball and all, but there's something I just love about football," said Wiggins. "It's just something I'm really good at, plus it keeps me busy and gets me off the street."

Wiggins is an all-state safety, but his natural ability shines all over the field for the Raiders. A good example is in the offensive backfield where Jeremy's skills leave defenders scratching their heads. Just ask the Thomasville Bulldogs. Last Friday, as Wiggins led his Raiders to a 20-13 win over the Dogs, he scored twice and ran for 131 yards.

"I just want to do the best I can and help out my team," said Wiggins. "If it leads to a college scholarship, I'll be happy, I would love to play somewhere in the SEC."

"You hate to think about life after Jeremy," added Wright. "He is an outstanding player and an outstanding individual; he'll be missed next year."
