It's been more than two decades since an Ohio Div. II football team has won back-to-back Ohio state championships, but La Salle senior star Jeremy Larkin wants the Lancers to be the next team to accomplish that feat.
This past season as a football running back, Jeremy set nine school records in leading the Lancers to a 14-1 record and the school's first-ever Div. II Ohio state title, rushing for 2,585 yards and scoring 42 over all touchdowns.
Among his numerous football honors, Jeremy was a MaxPreps Junior All-American, a finalist for Mr. Ohio Football, Ohio Div. II Offensive Co-Player of the Year, Southwest Ohio District Div. II Player of the Year and Cincinnati Player of the Year, to name a few. He was the only junior to be a finalist for last year's LaRosa's Male MVP of the Year award.
Jeremy also stars on the basketball court. He averaged 10.3 points and 4.1 rebounds a game this past season and was named GCL South Defensive Player of the Year and 1st team all-city.
A prize college recruit, Jeremy has committed to play football for the University of Cincinnati.
COACH'S QUOTE – "Jeremy Larkin is the total package. He exemplifies what it is to be a Lancer. He has integrity, character, leadership, toughness and an unbelievable work ethic. Jeremy is a great person!"
