Tremper Senior | Jazz Peavy signs to be a Badger
|Written by Amber -|
The countdown to graduation is certainly on for this decorated senior. Jazz Peavy will only have a couple days in between his last day at Tremper High School (Kenosha, WI) and the first day he reports to the football stadium at UW-Madison.
Back in April, Jazz was the top performer at the Chicago Nike Combine with a SPARQ score of 122.52. (The runner up had a score of 115.86.) Ridiculous performance! You can read all the details and watch his ESPN interview video here. At that time, he was in conversation with Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Penn State and Northwestern. Since then, he has received official offers to play at Wisconsin, Central Michigan, Minnesota and Wyoming, but he ultimately signed in June to be a Badger!
It was a pleasure for us to photograph Jazz. He's a really cool guy, and very humble. As soon as we saw him, we knew he was obviously super athletic, but until we asked the right questions, we didn't even know his plans to be a receiver at Madison. Pretty cool! ....And, we're really pleased with how these shots came out, too. Lookin' like an Adidas, Nike or Under Armor athlete you'd see on a giant wall graphic in a store somewhere. Ha!
