Next season one of the most talented teams in Colorado football will be the Bear Creek Bears. At every position, the Bears return gifted players who have the experience of a squad that made it to the state semifinals. The Bears are led by multitalented runner, receiver, kicker Tommy Flanagan, young but skilled quarterback Zach Thenell, receiver Dajuan Mack and an offensive line anchored by Jeremiah Sirles.
At 6-7 and 270 pounds, Sirles has the frame that D1 programs crave in an offensive tackle. More importantly, Sirles has been a starter since his sophomore year, honing his position in competition against the likes of CU bound Curtis Cunningham. Another benefit from his time at Bear Creek that should transfer well to the next level, is Sirles' ability to both run and pass block. In the Bear Creek offense, the Bears throw the ball numerous times a game and as such, Sirles is very comfortable in pass protection.
Sirles' skill set of prototypical size, experience and talent has not escaped the attention of top D1 programs. Currently, Sirles holds offers from across the nation including schools amongst the best in the Big 12 and Pac 10.
Last season, Sirles ran the table with year end honors making All-League and All-State. Most importantly, Bear Creek upset Columbine and made it to the state semifinals. This upcoming season, Sirles and his mates would like to take it one more step and make it to the finals.
