Jerimiah Spicer – Not Waiting, But Playing For The Manifestation

Starting life with no options and no clear guidance, failure and defeat overwhelmingly appears to be the only option. However, the best thing about being down, the only way to go is – up. In that position, words like “no,” “can’t” and “won’t” can be the fuel to witness the manifestation of a “yes.” And Jerimiah Spicer will not stop until his “yes” is manifested.

“I feel like I just need that one person to believe in me because I am a diamond in the rough and have a God-giving gift,” said Spicer via conversation. “Not many people can survive the life I survived.”

Spicer did not attend a four-year college, nor did he have NFL scouts beating down his door. Without those opportunities, being eligible for the NFL Regional Combine was not allotted. That did not stop Spicer.

“I never got invited to the regional combine,” said Spicer. “I called myself and I wasn’t eligible. But I didn’t let that stop me.”

At Banning High School in Banning, California (Riverside County outside Los Angeles), Spicer was not a four-star recruit, probably not a two-star. Nevertheless, the 6-1, 245-pound linebacker had five-star skill set in hunger and desire that was birthed at Skid Row.

Skid Row is sustained as one of the largest populations of homeless people in America.

So clearly, words like “no,” “can’t” and “won’t” has registered into manifestation it was design to detail – oppression and hopelessness.

Well, what was meant to destroy also can be meant for someone’s good.

“With no parents, homeless in downtown Los Angeles, Skid Row, foster homes, four group homes, mom died, dad no where around, grandma died, I had to face the world alone,” described Spicer.

Spicer was left in a garbage can as a child. He was found and raised in an orphanage. For a period of time, CPS placed Spicer with his grandmother, Martha Williams, before she passed. Spicer proudly reminisced how great his grandmother was, and was emotional when he detailed how she healed his feet because his did not have any shoes.

The concrete jungle of the streets have no mercy, and while being raised to become a man in homeless shelters in Los Angeles, Spicer took on the spirit of anger, rejection, fear and abandonment.

Battling through those obstacles, Spicer, appropriately, hated school, defied authority and nearly succumbed to his environment.

“I was angry. “I didn’t want to listen. I didn’t want to study,” stated Spicer. “I didn’t want to learn. But life gets real and you can’t keep blaming other people. Statistics say I should be already dead or in prison. I finally realized the only thing in my life I could change was me.”

After changing his mindset, Spicer recognized that Skid Row, abandonment and rejection was a part of his destiny for greatness – and the gridiron was going to be his pathway.

“A lot of people thought I would fail because of my background, but I kept pushing through,” voiced Spicer, humbly. “I have some real supports and they know who they are and so do I. I am forever grateful (to the) people who took me in when I was homeless, etc.”

Football became Spicer’s sanctuary, and after attending several high schools, Banning High was his first stop. Following high school, Spicer earned the opportunity of playing at Riverside Community College.

With no NFL Regional Combine invite, Spicer kept working and added the “not eligible” tag to fire, which fuel of his drive towards the NFL. Since 2016, Spicer has been doing the leg work of contacting and mailing film of himself to NFL clubs. He had some interest from the CFL, but that did not materialize.

After countless rejections of all sorts, Spicer finally received a “yes.” In 2018, Spicer signed with the Cape Fear Heroes of the American Arena League.

“I gained interest from the (Minnesota) Vikings D-coordinator George Edwards and (Los Angeles) Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn,” said Spicer. “They liked me, but wanted more film. I said to them if I get First Team, can I get a shot. They said Yes.”

Spicer was supremely dominant. The 6-1, 245-pound linebacker amassed 147 tackles as a rookie. His performance earned him First-Team, All-League linebacker. Spicer’s outing opened doors expanding several professional leagues, including the biggest boy on the block.

According to Spicer, several teams in the NFL have expressed interest, however, the Chargers kept their word.

Lynn and the Chargers placed Spicer on their short list of players to workout. The Chargers invited Spicer to their Week 11 contest against the Denver Broncos and stood on the sideline where he took the moment in.

“It felt special being on the side line,” said Spicer. “I felt like I was at home and around my future teammates. I soaked up knowledge of the game, used it as a learning experience.”

Before the manifestation occurs, it has to be seen first. Through Spicer’s struggles and some minor victories, he envisioned his destiny to play in the NFL. Evidently, one’s destiny will not just happen. Blood, sweat, tears, disappointment and encouragement must take place. “no” “can’t” and “won’t” must be said. Spicer experienced it all.

Being on a NFL sideline is truly a breathtaking experience that only a select few have had.  For Spicer, he desires to have that rush of excitement as part of his norm.

From Skid Row with wore out clothes, to the NFL sideline wearing a uniform, what a manifestation that will be.

    Good luck commenting on other sites you enjoy! Problogger, Boost Blog Traffic, and Carol Tice’s are great ones. Feel free to give mine (Be A Better Blogger) a look as well.

    I also find Twitter a great way to make at least an initial contact with influencer’s in ones niche.I’m going to schedule time to comment on the sites I already enjoy, like problogger, and Jon Morrow’s site, Carol Tice’s and so many others.
    It’s really about adding to the conversation and that is hard to do each time. I think that’s why I refrain sometimes from commenting.

  8. 바카라사이트

    helpful post of course or why take the time to write in about it. I see another blogger here who says commenting really helped her. So thanks for lighting a fire for me.
    Of course, sometimes I can’t find it. Sometimes the person doesn’t have a website, sometimes they do have a website but don’t advertise their Twitter handle, and sometimes I can’t find their Twitter handle through Twitter search.

    If they have a unique name, I’ll often have success simply searching for their name within Twitter. If they have a common name, I have to look at their bio photos. If they match the gravatar used in their comment, I can be reasonably sure it’s the same person.
    First thing I do is visit the person’s blog. If they advertise their Twitter handle somewhere on there (the sidebar, About page, footer, etc.) it’s pretty easy. Where it gets tricky is if the person doesn’t advertise their Twitter on their site.

  10. 카지노사이트

    Well, find everyone’s Twitter handles isn’t exactly magic. Just takes a little hard work.
    With low mail-open rates I wouldn’t think it was effective. Tweet seems like a cool idea.How’d you do the magic – finding twitter handle of people who comment and all that?
