Jeremiah Newton plays wide receiver and linebacker for the Armijo High School junior varsity (JV) team and, although he is still relatively young, he brings some experience to the team.

Newton has been playing football for six years and he wanted to join the Armijo team so he can continue his career. His earlier experience has been on a club team, not in middle school because they don’t wear pads and helmets to actual games.

With six years of experience behind him, Newton sees the potential of playing the sport for life. He truly loves it and hopes to one day make it to play on the National Football League (NFL). If that doesn’t work, though, he has a back-up plan, to do construction, maybe build houses.

Newton’s #1fan and supporter, he said, is probably his mother. He’s not the first person that she has been a fan of. Newton’s older brother Jimmy also played football at Armijo in 2010 and 2011 and she was fully behind him, too.
