April Athlete Spotlight: Jeremy Blodgett, Youth Unified Program

Jeremy Blodgett has been involved with Special Olympics Oregon for 6 years, and currently is in his last year with the Youth Unified Program. He has transformed himself from a quiet, withdrawn individual to a team leader with a competitive but fun nature.  He enjoys sports but is especially fond of basketball where he led his team in scoring averaging 20 plus points per game at the regional Youth Unified Basketball tournament at Oregon State University.

According to his coaches,  “It is not that Jeremy is a ball hog but he just knows to go to the low post area where his teammates are aware that he  shoots a very high percentage.  Jeremy’s role of the go to guy at the offense end of the court has earned him the nickname “The Money Man”.

In softball Jeremy has a knack for getting on base.  Once he gets on base, he is a talented base runner and last season led the Sutherlin Blue Thunder in the number of runs scored.  He is a great teammate and friend.  He loves to cheer on his team when he is not in the game.   He is a crowd favorite because of his fun nature.

Jeremy loves playing video games and watching Jim Carey movies when he is at home with his twin brother Justin, his older brother Derick and his mom and dad. Thank you Jeremy for always having fun and playing hard.
