UPDATE: Surprised? Jimmer Fredette wins the ESPY for 2011 Collegiate Athlete of the Year!
Some of you might be asking “What’s Jimmer up to these days?”
The answer: tons of things.
First, Jimmer and family have been out in New York and surrounding areas at weddings (not his).
Jimmer has also been planning a shooting camp in Lehi, Utah starting next week (which we’ll be at). Other people you might see there:
- Marty Haws (Tyler Haws dad and former BYU point guard),
- Dale Murphy – partner in the “I Won’t Cheat” Foundation with Marty and former BYU and MLB Baseball player
- TJ Fredette – yep, the rapper!
- Al Fredette – Jimmer’s dad.
- And over 600 kids who want to shoot like Jimmer!
Jimmer Wins the ESPY?
Jimmer is up for the best male college athlete award tonight when the ESPN’s The ESPY’s show is aired live from Las Vegas. His competition for the honor is UConn guard Kemba Walker and Auburn quarterback Cam Newton.
Those guys led their teams to national championships. Jimmer was the consensus national player of the year in college basketball.
Jimmer’s Golf Game
Jimmer will compete in the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament beginning Friday at Lake Tahoe. He might have an ESPY award to show off on the shores of the beautiful lake on the California-Nevada border.
Fredette said his goal is to just break 100 each day at the golf tourney. Actually, the tournament uses a Stableford scoring-like format, so he will be trying to accumulate points for birdies, eagles and pars, and avoid negative points for bogeys or worse.
Callaway has set him up with new clubs. Fredette said he got in several rounds last week when he was home in Glens Falls, N.Y., and that his game “still needs a lot of work.”
Fredette is listed at 40-to-1 odds to win the $125,000 first prize. The favorites include Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (5-2), former Braves pitcher John Smoltz (5-1) and former Broncos quarterback John Elway (10-1).
