Q&A: Jermaine Sherman, NSU wide receiver

Thirty-six catches and 541 yards is nothing to sneeze at in terms of production from a wide receiver. But compared to his teammate, Trey McVay, Jermaine Sherman’s numbers were good for only second best for Northeastern State in 2011. But Sherman will lead NSU’s strong wide receiving group during his senior year in 2012.

What’s it like working with a guy like Johnny Deaton (NSU’s quarterback)?

He’s a good guy. He’s a character. He knows his stuff, though. I’ll give it to him. He’s the best quarterback that I’ve played with — since high school since NEO (Northeastern Oklahoma A&M). He should be at a D-I playing right now. He’s that good.

What kind of hobbies do you have outside of football?

I work a lot, but I like playing the PS3. I like fishing, too.

Where do you have a job at in town?

I work at the Starbucks at Tahlequah City Hospital. I make the Frappuccinos and coffee — it’s a good playing job. Plus, they love me up there since I play football for NSU.

How excited are you to play Pittsburg State, the defending national champion, in the first game of the season?

It should sell out. The first game should be sold out. Their fans travel and our fans travel. That first game is going to be important. And everybody is going to think, ‘Pitt State this, Pitt State that.’ But they’re in for a rude awakening.

How proud were you of your alma mater (Wagoner) when they won the Class 4A state championship in 2011?

I proud of them. There’s a lot of talent there. There’s a lot of hidden talent at Wagoner that people don’t realize. (Dale) Condict has turned that program around a lot. I think it’s one of the top-five 4A programs in football.
