2022’s Jeremiah Oscar prides himself on being a lockdown defender

Jeremiah Oscar is one of the best players from the Orlando, FL area in the Class of 2022.  


The 5-foot-10, 165-pound Oscar is a dynamic player that works as a wide receiver and cornerback. 



Oscar has earned plenty of recognition during his career, such as: DB MVP AT "The Pit" and being invited to the Football Hotbed All American Game.

Oscar is humbled by the accolades. 

“Being MVP and getting invited to camps and games really makes me push harder because I know my potential,” Oscar said. “It was a pretty good experience. It showed me that I improved at my position.”

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


Oscar is going all out. 


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


“My mindset at corner is "No Fly Zone" and shut down everything that comes my way,” Oscar said. 


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


“What I love the most about playing football is the energy,” Oscar said. 


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


“Playing football has taught to never give up and be patient,” Oscar said. 


Oscar shares his favorite memory of playing football.


“My favorite memory was when I was doubted by my coaches on my little league team for how small I was. They benched me for the year,” Oscar said. “Then the next year it was a different me and they couldn't take me off the field.”


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


“I demonstrate being a good teammate by being a leader and never letting one play get me done,” Oscar said. “The best advice I give my teammates is to keep your head in the books and just keep working on your craft.”

“I look up to Jeff Okudah,” Oscar said.
