We are excited to announce the first of several new additions to The Wise Guise crew in Jeremy Wilson! Jeremy has joined us several times before covering various topics and we’re glad to have his commitment to join us now on a weekly basis in 2013! The following is his bio-
I was born and raised in Lakeland, Fl– the 21st largest city in Florida, but its the largest city in the state if you exclude the 20 ahead of it. Lakeland, located in between Tampa and Orlando, is a hotbed of high school football talent. I spent my high school playing days chasing those guys all over the field.
I fled Gator country after high school and was the fifth and final member of my family to graduate from the University of Tennessee. I met fellow Wise Guise staffer Clayton Martin in Gibbs Hall, where we started our friendship and also where I started my video game domination over him. I graduated in December of 2012, studying Sport Management and Business Administration. I am now working as an Assistant Golf Professional at a golf course in Chicago, IL, as of April 2013.
My life has predominantly revolved around sports. In college, I was a basketball manager at Tennessee for 2.5 years, where I learned how to pick up Coach Pearl’s kids from school and a few basketball related items. I love television and movies, and I don’t understand how some people choose to live without either/both. My sports alliances are the Tennessee Vols, Indianapolis Colts (because of Peyton, and now I’m a fan for the long haul), Orlando Magic (my only hometown area allegiance), and the New York Yankees (semi regional allegiance due to Spring Training in Tampa).
I will write mainly about sports, and occasionally about quirky day to day observations. Always feel free to comment on my writing, but just know that I will take it personally and most likely send an insult your way that will cross the line. Just kidding, sort of.
