At just 20 years old, Jérémy Sebas has already become a name to watch in French football. Born on April 14, 2003, in Martinique, this young striker has been making headlines with his impressive performances for Ligue 1 club RC Strasbourg Alsace and the Martinique national team.

Sebas made his international debut for Martinique in a friendly win over Barbados on February 22, 2022, at the age of 18. His potential didn't go unnoticed, and soon he found himself on trial with FC Lorient. Expressing his ambitions, Sebas stated, “My goal is to have a great season with Olympique du Marin (his team in Martinique). I also hope to have the opportunity to go to France soon.”

His determination and hard work paid off when, at 19, Sebas signed with RC Strasbourg Alsace on June 17, 2022. This marked a significant milestone in his career, and he spoke about his joy, saying, "I am thrilled. As I often say, it’s the fruit of hard work. Today is the reward and I want to work further to go higher. RC Strasbourg trusts me. That’s what they made me understand from the start, and that’s what I also liked about this club. It’s a family, and I want to be part of it.”

During his initial contract period, Sebas continued to make a name for himself, playing 25 matches and scoring 4 goals in National 3 with the club's reserve team. His dedication and skillset earned him a professional contract extension until 2026.

The breakthrough moment came when Sebas scored his first goal in Ligue 1, and what a memorable one it was – against Olympique de Marseille, resulting in a 1-1 draw on match day 18 of this season. RCSA coach Patrick Vieira praised the young talent, stating, "I'm very happy for him. Scoring your first goal at the Vélodrome, you can hardly do better."



In the context of Martinique's football history, Sebas joins the ranks of other notable players like Emmanuel Rivière, David Régis, and Garry Bocaly. These players have left their mark in French football, both domestically and internationally.

Emmanuel Rivière, with stints at AS Saint-Étienne, FC Toulouse, AS Monaco, and FC Metz, showcased his talents after being scouted from Martinique. Similarly, David Régis, who played in Ligue 1 with RC Strasbourg Alsace and other clubs, represented the United States at World Cups after being naturalized. Garry Bocaly, born in Schœlcher, Martinique, had spells with Olympique Marseille and Montpellier HSC.

Gérard Janvion, another Martiniquais football legend, played over 300 matches in Ligue 1 with AS Saint-Étienne and Paris Saint-Germain, even participating in two World Cups with France. Janvion started his football journey with the local CS Case-Pilote in Martinique before making a name for himself in French football.

In the footsteps of these figures, Jérémy Sebas is on a trajectory to carve his legacy in the world of football. With his recent successes, including a crucial goal in Ligue 1, Sebas is poised for more playing time and continued growth. As he represents both RC Strasbourg Alsace and the Martinique national team, we are all looking forward to the next steps in the promising career of Jérémy Sebas.
