Former Watford defender Jay DeMerit rose to fame in England from the depths of a seventh-tier team all the way up to the Premier League during the 2006-2007 season. While Watford’s stay in the Premier League was short-lived, DeMerit went on to represent his nation, the United States, to the pinnacle of the 2010 World Cup.
His story is an inspirational one, and it will soon be told in a video documentary entitled “Chasing The Dream: The Jay DeMerit Story.” You can watch the trailer from Diesel Films Inc. As soon as we have more information regarding its release, we’ll be sure to let you know.
In the meantime, here’s my interview with Jay DeMerit from 2008.
