Jerious Bittle: Class of 2017 Spotlight

Admiration for sports start at a young age for most athletes, particularly with football.

Since age five, Jerious Bittle has become passionate about football and what a mistress the sport has become.

From playing peewee flag football to going into his junior year of high school, the 5’11, 202-pound Bittle has been making a name for himself on the field.

Benching 285, squatting 395 and running 4.69 on the 40, Bittle’s presence in the LB and FB slot on the Homer High School varsity team has become a household name as he was named the 2014 All-District 1st Team LB and compiled 71 tackles, 5 forced fumbles and 4 sacks.

“I love competition,” Bittle said. “I like going against guys that are bigger or even better than me. I love a challenge.”

This upcoming season Bittle will be taking his skills to the powerhouse Haynesville Golden Tornado football team under coach David Franklin and taking the position as LB and WB.

Despite his work on the field, Bittle is also putting in work outside of the field.

With a 19 ACT composite score and maintaining a 3.75 GPA, Bittle participates in track and baseball.

Although Bittle has yet to receive any offers, he has high hopes for getting an offer.

“An offer would mean a lot to me,” Bittle said. “Being able to play at the next level and getting an education would be great.”

If asked about Bittle’s work ethic (on and off the field), he is known among many to be a hard worker and will serve as a good asset to any roster.
