COSHOCTON – Jacob Ramsey was torn between Muskingum University and Bluffton University, but he has officially decided on the Bluffton Beavers.

“I like the campus and they have a new coach that I think is going to turn the program around,” he said.

Ramsey, a senior at Coshocton High School, signed his letter of intent to play soccer at Bluffton on Feb. 1 at Coshocton High School.

“It feels good to have signed,” he said. “It’s exciting because I’ve always wanted to play in college. I have to thank Brandon Matz because he’s worked with me since I was 3 and is a big part of me being able to do this. I also want to thank Coach Brian Dunlap, Coach Tony Jones and my family.”

Ramsey plays forward and is excited about continuing in that role at the college level.

“I love being out there on the soccer field, clearing my mind and kicking the ball around,” he said.

Ramsey is the son of Mandy and Brent Ramsey.

“We are very proud of him and excited about the opportunities this will bring for him in his future,” Mandy said. “Bluffton has a nice campus and I think this is a good fit for him.”

Brent said he’s enjoyed watching Jacob grow up on the soccer field.

“He’s played since he was 3 and this has always been his goal,” Brent said. “He works hard all year round.”

Jacob plans to major in international business and encourages other student athletes with the dream of playing in college to keep pushing.

“Keep going,” he said. “Even when you think you’ve pushed yourself to the limit push a little harder. The work will pay off in the end.”
