Henry Ford II is home to many of our Fan Choice Award winners this season - and this isn’t Jeremy Taras’ first rodeo! He won in a few categories last season, but topped himself this year taking home 5 different awards for Favorite Kicker, Punter, Goalie, Favorite Senior and Favorite Student under the “Unsung Hero” category.
Bend it Like Jeremy
While some seniors take it easy their last year of high school, Jeremy has never been one to settle. He has played varsity sports most of his high school years and is the co-president of his school’s National Honor Society. He switches back and forth between which sports are his favorite, circulating through soccer, football, and basketball. This time around, he says he’s focusing on football. He says “Usually it’s always been soccer... I’ll take soccer over everything. But, recently, realizing that soccer is not as popular in America and all that, so, football.. I’ve been starting to put more dedication into football.” Regardless of the sport he’s playing, he says his team always makes him feel welcome.
Almost to the End Zone
“I’m glad that people see me as is...because it’s not my goal to go in and win all these awards,” Jeremy says about his five Fan Choice wins. “My goal is to just go in and try to be a role model for people.” He adds that he wants to “do the best that he can” so that people “can see where the program is.” His goal is to leave his footprint on the program. As Jeremy puts it, “you just have to make memories where you can.”
