Colorado Springs, CO-Jeremy Faulk is the 2015 Spalding NJCAA Football Defensive Player of the Year the NJCAA announced late Wednesday afternoon. In addition Faulk was named KJCCC Co-Defensive player of the year and was named 1st Team All-KJCCC as a defensive tackle.
Faulk joins former Broncbuster Quarterback Chris Windsor and Running Back Frank Murphy. Windsor was named 1994 NJCAA Player of The Year Murphy was named 1994 NJCAA Player of The Year.
Head Broncbuster Football Coach Jeff Sims Stated,"Jeremy Faulk is the example of what Junior College football is all about, he bought into the daily process of improving academically, athletically, and as a young man in an effort to create opportunities for his future. Jeremy was not afraid to work hard, trust, and make corrections along the way. If it was studying hours at a time or having to do a football technique over and over again, Jeremy never gave up and continued to work thru any hurdle always moving forward towards his goals of graduating, being the best football player he could be, and creating new opportunities on the 4 year level. I always told him not to say thank you, thank me by graduating, his actions have been the greatest compliment a coach can receive."
When asked about his experience Jeremy Faulk stated, "It's an honor to win the Spalding NJCAA Defensive Player of the Year Award. To be in a position to win this award it took more than just me. I would like to thank my family especially my mother Kim Myles for always supporting me. I am thankful to all the people at Garden City Community College, the professors, Ms. Chandler, Coach Cherico, Coach Michalowski, my teammates and the rest of the coaches. When I didn't think I was going to make my goal of graduating and playing major college football, Garden City gave me an option when I thought there were none. The work ethic and faith instilled in me by my mother and structure provided for me by Garden City Community College is where I learned to Never Give Up – Never Give In. Thank You GOD Bless"
Earlier this week Faulk was named NJCAA 1st Team All-American. Faulk has committed to Baylor University.
