Family fuels Wynn’s passion

Football has run through senior Jeremiah Wynn’s family for as long as he can remember.

“My dad put me into football at a young age. I had a lot of older brothers and cousins play, and we loved to run around the house all day with a lot of energy,” Wynn said.

Wynn, a defensive back and running back or quarterback when needed, has been successful due to his athleticism and passion for the game, according to teammates.

“He is an incredible athlete and that makes him stand out in a lot of ways. He’s talented and versatile,” teammate and senior Jack Reilly said.

Wynn is also known for inspiring the team through speeches and bringing the team together during highs and lows, according to Reilly.

“We all we got, we all we need,” is Wynn’s go-to saying after practices and games.

“It’s really admirable when somebody really likes what they do and appreciates their craft, while also being good at it,” head coach Daron Reid said.
He looks up to his older cousin, Sean Chandler, who plays in the NFL for the New York Giants. Wynn currently has offers from Towson, Delaware State and Fairmont and hopes to make it to the NFL one day.

As of Oct. 12, Wynn has 30 tackles with three interceptions, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, a thrown touchdown pass and 200 total yards from scrimmage.

A lot of responsibility falls on Wynn as a captain.

“On the field, he’s the battery pack for the defense. When he gets amped up, everybody gets amped up. He’s the first guy out, and the last guy to leave,” Reid said.

Aside from football, Wynn wrestles, runs track and likes to draw. Before away games, Wynn listens to slow music to go to sleep. When he wakes up, he meditates and then listens to upbeat music to get pumped up.
