Chooses Division I Western Michigan

Jesse Ramer has signed a letter of intent to continue playing soccer at division I Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo. Bronco's head coach Stu Riddle says, "Jesse is a born leader. His ability to organize his teammates competantly is second to none. He has a great range of passing with both feet and his athleticism will stand him in excellent stead to compete right away at the Division I level."

As a four-year starter at Bethany, Jesse helped the Bruins to their first-ever boys soccer sectional championship and three straight conference titles. He was named to the second team all-state and earned all-state academic honors this year. For the past two years he has served on the Indiana High School Athletic Association's 18-member Student Advisory Committee. Jesse is the son of Brian and Jan Ramer and attends Yellow Creek Mennonite Church.
