Nehemiah Squire Wins the Platinum Star
The PLATINUM STAR AWARD is youth Football’s version of the Heisman Trophy award. This honor will be awarded to the nation’s most outstanding youth football player. There will be a winner from each grade, 6th through 8th and players will be selected based on film, coach’s comments, individual stats, G.P.A., and team and community accomplishments. Players who engage in community service and other productive activities will have a greater chance at winning the award. We believe that there is no age too young to begin the journey towards greatness.
Nehemiah Squire might be an unknown to some but to many, the Darlington, SC native is a memory they can’t erase. Nehemiah who most call “Nemo” is built like a tank. Squire has the ability to run you over or has a gear to outrun you. Arguably the most talented of all the finalists, Nemo had an outstanding 2016′-17′ season on both sides of the ball. Nehemiah is a threat with the football and is as good of a linebacker there is without it. He also has a 3.8 GPA, so to say the young man deserves to be a Platinum Star finalist is an understatement.
As the 2016 winner Nehemiah has displayed the qualities on and off the playing field that makes him eligible for the award. The National Sports Report is proud to recognize him as our players of the year and want to honor his accomplishments with our Platinum Star Award. We visited Nehemiah’s Hometown of Florance South Carolina to present the award in front of more that friends and family. Nemo gave us a private workout that was so impressive that left us wondering how he ever was allowed to compete against kids his age. Squire was also awarded a coveted Gold Box full of gear from Sleefs and will attend the FBU Charlotte Camp as the player of the year.
