Family Put Bruin on the Right Track

Jeremy Silverman's strength on the field is only matched by his strength of character. A shot put and discus thrower for UCLA, the 21-year-old student athlete has a kind, grounded quality. Silverman grew up in Annville, Penn., a town with one stoplight and a gas station. As a member of the only Jewish family at a very small high school, Silverman bore witness to some anti-Semitic attitudes. Still, he celebrated the Jewish holidays.
