But in reality…this is an historic moment for Jimtown Athletics as the first student-athlete soccer players in Jimtown history have signed their letters of intent to play soccer at the college level.
Jimtown just added boys soccer as a sport, this past fall. 2 of the students that raised their hands and said, “YES…I will play” are Trent and Andrew Eaton. Our senior twins have had some soccer experience in the past but not for years and years. The twins picked up the ball and decided to represent the Jimmies this past fall. Each of the Eaton twins was a starter for the Jimmies and major contributors in our first soccer campaign. Trent was our starting goalie for the majority of the games this year.
Both Trent and Andrew Eaton are excellent students at Jimtown. Both young men have cumulative GPA’s that are in the upper 3.7 to 3.9 range and will bring an outstanding work ethic with them in both the academic and athletic world at the college level.
Both young men have now signed their offer from Ancilla College in Donaldson to play soccer for the Chargers. The nice thing for the Eaton’s is that Ancilla is a small college that is close to home. Each of these young men will have the opportunity to contribute to their team right away. In addition, the school is close enough for Mom and Dad to watch some of the games. Ancilla College is located in Donaldson, Indiana (not that far from Plymouth). Ancilla is part of the MCAA (Michigan Community Colleges Athletic Association)
Congratulations to Trent and Andrew Eaton!! We are proud of YOU!!
