Michael: Jeremy, you have achieved some really outstanding success in sport -- particularly in track and field and football? Share how you first became interested in sports.
Jeremy: My father urged me to play sports at a very early age. I grew up in a small town and there wasn’t really anything else to do so i started playing them all, soccer, baseball, football and basketball. I then realized that I had the talent to play in high school and in college and went from there.
Michael: Describe some of the most thrilling moments you enjoyed as an athlete
Jeremy: HIGH SCHOOL: Being named first team all conference and on the all region team in football. State track meet in track. Playing with brady quinn was pretty fun too!
COLLEGE: All conference and being ranked 3rd and 5th in the nation at the ncaa d3 level for football. My best game was the opener of my senior season when I had 4 rushing touchdowns in one game. Qualifying and going to nationals in 3 events and breaking 4 school records.
Michael: Runners often speak of the 'natural high' that comes from it.. tell us about it from your perspective
Jeremy: Oh yes there is definitely a natural high that comes from running. I think it is even more of a high when it is done competiiively against other athletes.
After I win a race or run a personal best time I am on cloud 9 for the next 5 minutes. I usually walk around the track to catch my breath and feel like I am on top of the world.
Michael: Since we featured you on Connex247, I am sure you will have noticed some of the very complimentary remarks made in the comments section. How do you react to your obvious growing fan base.
Jeremy: To be honest, I love it! I still check the story every few days to see if any new comments have been made. They are very flattering but I think what I like the most is that it gives me more drive and determination to be successful.
Michael: You were named best dressed guy on campus by Playboy.. Tell us how this came about
Jeremy: A fellow track and field teammate in college told me about it. He gave me the link to send in the pics since it was an online contest. I stated that i wanted to be the best dressed jock on campus and sent some athletic pics and the rest is history.
Michael: And you have been in Cosmopolitan.. How did this happen
Jeremy: Once again, this was a contest as well. I just wrote in and sent some pictures and they ultimately picked me as one of their 50 sexiest bachelors in america.
Michael: You also tried out for Survivor.. Describe this experience.
Jeremy: That experience was amazing. I got to see how the show works from behind the scenes and how they pick their contestants. I made it to the final 50 but unfortunately did not get picked for the show.
Michael: Share with us your personal and professional goals for the rest of 2007
Jeremy: Professionaly i would love to have at least one more big job occur. I had cosmopolitan two years ago and playboy and an abercrombie fashion show last year. So far this year i have appeared on all american guys and connex247 and would love to have one more deal before 2008 occurs.
Personally I want to gain 5 lbs and move out on my own! I currently live with 3 guys i played football with in college and they still have one more year left. There are only a few months left on the lease so hopefully buster (my dog) and i will be in a new place soon.
Michael: We hear there may be a video inhe works...What might we expect?
