Jerome was an 11th grader and the younger brother of Lepolian "Ricky" Gentry during the 1975 Callaway high school football year. Jerome started the year off as the starting running back in the same backfield as his brother Ricky. Although rushing for over 100 yards during the first game, Jerome was moved to the all famous position of nose guard. Coach Allman would later make the quote about Jerome as, "The littlest nose guard in the world". Jerome went on to start the rest of the season at the nose guard position. Jerome had speed and quickness that made him almost impossible to block by opposing teams. During that year, Jerome received All-Conference honors. Jerome would later move back to the running back position during his senior year and rush for almost 1,000 yards. After his senior year, Jerome signed a football scholarship with Jackson State University.
