LSC Roundup 7-9

Growing up the Hard Way: Jeremy Aguilar's Success Story - KRIS TV (with video)
KINGSVILLE - Texas A&M-Kingsville linebacker Jeremy Aguilar has become a star at the Division II level. The Javelina senior recorded a team high 91 tackles including 14 for loss, in 2011, and last year's production has not gone overlooked. Aguilar has been awarded several pre-season accolades, including being named Lone Star conference pre-season player of the year by Dave Campbell's Texas High School Football Magazine.

But it hasn't always been roses for the California product. Aguilar was born and raised in Boyle Heights, a rough neighborhood in Los Angeles County. "I've seen a murder happen when I was probably 15 years old, I've seen one of my good buddies get stabbed a couple times, and I've seen an overdose before. That's just growing up back home.... You just gotta live with it."

It didn't start off well for the star linebacker, who didn't finish high school the traditional way. Instead of walking across the stage, Aguilar earned his GED independently. Now, he is on his way to achieving something for the first time in his family. "Ag", as his teammates like to call him, is planning on earning a college diploma at graduation in December.
