QUOTING JEREMIAH BEMBRY

“Jeremiah can jump out of the gym. Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton is getting a really good prospect.  I think he fits their (the Seminoles’) style of play. Florida State plays up and down; they’re athletic; they’re long; they have big guards. Jeremiah fits the bill … He’s just a good all-around player,” said Executive Education Academy Head Coach Ray Barbosa.

WHY I WEAR MY NUMBER

Jeremiah Bembry – I wear No. 10 at Florida State to honor one of my closest friends who wore the number in both middle school and high school before he passed away. 

Jeremiah Bembry is the 20th player in school history to wear No. 10.  Sam Cassell, currently an assistant coach with the Philadelphia 76ers, wore No. 10 during his two-year career at Florida State.  Cassell is listed 31 times in Florida State’s record book and is still ranked 10th in scoring, 12th in steals and tied for 21st in 3-point field goals made. 

WHAT'S IN A NAME

My full name is Jeremiah Tyler Bembry.  Jeremiah is the name of the youngest prophet in the Bible, and is also my great grandfather’s name.  I was given my middle name, Tyler, by my godmother.

MY HOMETOWN

My hometown of Brooklyn, N.Y. is indescribable.  I would say that grit and hard work will pay off for you in Brooklyn. You need tons of sweat equity to get what you want, but it’ll be worth every effort once you reach your goals.  Another word to describe Brooklyn would be unforgettable.   Brooklyn is a place where you can be yourself and also find people that have the same interests as you.
