2021’s Jeremiah Odie is a sensational playmaker in the secondary

Jeremiah Odie is one of the best players from the Orlando, FL area in the Class of 2021.  


The 6-foot-1, 175-pound Odie, who attends Tohopekaliga High School, is a dynamic player that works as a cornerback and safety. 



No matter the opponent, every game Odie is determined to give it his all. 


Odie is going all out. 


The motor is always at full throttle whenever Odie steps between the lines.


“My mindset at my position is a dog mindset,” Odie said. “Never give up or get out of my head and focus on locking down whoever I go against.”


Odie has great passion and energy whenever he’s on the field. Odie tells why he enjoys the game of football so much. 


“I love the competition and studying the game,” Odie said. 


Odie has learned many valuable lessons from playing football that he applies to his everyday life. 


“I learned that there’s up and down and what you do about it will make you the person you are,” Odie said. 


Odie shares his favorite memory of playing football.


“My favorite memory of playing was in a 7-on-7 tournament,” Odie said. “I went over the top of a kid’s head to get the pick.”


Odie takes his role as one of the leaders on the team very seriously. Odie makes sure he’s a daily positive influence on his peers.


“I demonstrate being a good teammate by having great communication with my teammates and talking over playing and coverages,” Odie said. “The best advice I give my teammates is that whatever happens, never think you’re less than and keep grinding.”


Odie is appreciative of having amazing male role models that are supportive.


“I’ve learned that you have to have to have a short-term memory and always grind for what you want,” Odie said. You’ve got to look at the ball as money and the person in front of you is trying to take your money. What are you going to do about it?”


Odie patterns his mentality after these standouts. 

“I look up to Grant Delpit, Jamal Adams, Patrick Peterson, Tyrann Mathieu, Earl Thomas, Eddie Jackson, Miguel Fitzpatrick, and Harrison Smith,” Odie said. 

Odie lists science and math as his favorite subjects in school. 


Odie explains his collegiate aspirations. 


“My dream college is any Division I college,” Odie said. 


Odie is striving for greatness in all that he does. 


“My goal off the field is to get a degree in the medical field,” Odie said.
