Colorado Collection: Jeremy Bloom

The latest autograph card I've added to my Colorado Collection is of Jeremy Bloom. 

Jeremy was born and raised in Loveland, Colorado.  While attending Loveland High School, Jeremy helped lead both his football and track teams to state championship titles.  He then went on to become an All-American football player at the University of Colorado.

Jeremy's college football career was cut short when the NCAA declared him permanently ineligible due to his off the field skiing career, where he won 11 Gold Medals during his four years of competing on the World Cup Tour.

During the 2006 NFL Draft, Jeremy was selected in the fifth round by the Philadelphia Eagles, but his NFL career was short lived due to injuries.
