J.O. Johnson's Jeremy Isabelle

The J.O. Johnson Jaguars didn't have the season Jeremy Isabelle and his teammates had hoped for entering the season. However, the Jaguars are never short of talented college prospects, and this season is no different.

The Jags have been one of the top teams in 5A over the past several seasons, but this squad took a step back from their usual spot atop the 5A, Region 8 contenders list.

The loss of talented playmakers such as David Isabelle, Jomarcus Savage, Jontavius President, and others who are now playing college football, is a lot for one team to overcome.

Even with the loss of six or more players to college, and most of their starters to graduation, the Jags remained competitive in North Alabama's strongest region. Jeremy Isabelle was one of the players who helped make that possible.

Jeremy Isabelle played all over the field for the Johnson Jags this season. He filled in at quarterback, a position his brother had occupied before accepting a scholarship from UAB after last season.

Jeremy Isabelle also played defensive back, wide receiver and special teams for the Jags. All the playing time was welcomed by Isabelle as he had suffered through two seasons of injuries leading up to his senior year. All the hard work has finally paid off for the talented athlete, as he tells in his latest interview.

"I have an offer from Alabama A&M," Jeremy Isabelle told us from his home in Huntsville, (Ala.).

"I have an official visit set up for sometime in January. Me, DaMario (McNeal), and Fred Benjamin are all going up together to check things out," Isabelle said.

"I want to go over there to see what it is like at the next level, and to see what they expect of you once you arrive. I talk to Coach Anthony, and Coach Jones pretty often. They want me to come over there to play defensive back."

Alabama A&M isn't the only school showing the 6-1, 185-pound athlete interest.

"The other school that is still talking to me seriously is Middle Tennessee State," Isabelle stated. "I hear from them a lot, and their defensive backs coach came by the school a couple weeks back to talk to me."

While Jeremy Isabelle admits he might be leaning toward Alabama A&M, he isn't ready to pull the trigger at this time.

"I'm not ready to commit right now," he said. "I need to take my visits to be sure I am making the right choice."
