Also, Jordan Batten from Eastside Elementary competed on Saturday and placed 4th in the competition.
Jeremiah is the 11 year old son of Monique Overstreet. Jeremiah enjoys playing basketball, playing Minecraft on his XBOX and spending time with family, friends and his little sister Joi. Jeremiah plays basketball for the Coffee County Recreation department and recently made the All Star team for ages 11-12. Jeremiah is a member of Coffee County 4-H club where he serves as President.
