On the first day of February, several seniors at Chelsea High School gathered in the morning to sign their letters of intent to play athletics in college. The Bulldog signers were surrounded by friends, family, coaches, and supporters as they proudly committed to further their educations.
Jack Bush will be taking his outstanding quarterback skills to Hope College in Holland Michigan. The three-sport star (basketball and baseball) was a part of the all-time winningest class for Chelsea football. Bush quarterbacked the Bulldogs in 2015 to the state championship game at Ford Field in Detroit. In his junior and senior seasons, he had a record of 23-3.
Cam Cooper fielded many offers for football before choosing to be a Bulldog in college attending Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana. Cam, another multi-sport star, will be playing wide receiver and showing off his speed and field intelligence. He also was a member of the all-time winningest class in Chelsea football history.
Jesse Jacobusse is another multi-sport star, like many of Chelsea’s students. She has signed on with Michigan Tech in Houghton, Michigan. She will be putting her exceptional speed on display as she competes for the Huskies and will be also competing on their soccer team. Jesse went to states in track in 2016 and also excels at cross country and basketball where she is the starting guard. In her most recent game she put up 19 points to help lead her team to victory and she is very proficient at soccer, once scoring 5 goals in a game.
Natasha McElrath will be taking her exceptional soccer skills to the Sun Conference’s Savannah College of Art and Design in beautiful Georgia. There she will be on the field for the bees while getting a very high-quality education at one of the best art and design schools in the nation.
Travis Frazier will remain a Bulldog also in college as he takes his 6’7″ frame and strength to Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Michigan. Travis led the Bulldogs in sacks in 2016 and tackles for loss and drew double teams most of the time.
