Truly a treat to have Jerimiah Spicer in studio at the Dash Radio HQ’s on April 30th.
Incredible to share this inspiring young man’s story filled with sheer inspiration and hope, one whom against all odds, continues to push through whatever life throws at him.
From homeless on skid row as a child to numerous foster and group homes, eight high schools despite it all he managed to get to college and play football. Throughout the foster and group homes he struggled with many trying scenarios such as, no food after practice as the kitchen was closed. With continued drive and a never giving up mentality in 2018 he earned a spot with the Cape Fear Heroes of the American Arena League.
With more persistence he received invitations to a few NFL Pro Days, but one really resonated for him, specifically with Chargers Head Coach Anthony Lynn and after pursuing him on LinkedIn , Lynn replied. His support and word have meant the world to Jerimiah.
I met Jerimiah at the Chargers Local Pro Day at the Hoag Performance Center, but realized after we started speaking that he had been following me on Instagram and we had exchanged DMs. Also, Denzel Perryman shared much support on the same day, pictured above.
He possesses a tenacity and persistence with a never give up, his story will continue.No surprise Jerimiah in Hebrew means May God Uplift.
Enjoy the inspiration that this amazing human brings.
Jermiah’s sister Miracle also came in studio and shares some of her own incredible miraculous story as well as their separation and reuniting.
Also on the episode a quick hits and a recap of LA Chargers Draft 2019 as he came in studio a few days after.
