Congratulations to Cameron Sipple on this week committing to play collegiate soccer at Western Michigan University, continuing his education and soccer career as a Bronco starting in the fall of 2015.
Cam currently plays on our U17 Boys Gold team and has enjoyed a successful winter this year, having participated in National League play in North Carolina, Las Vegas, and the Disney Showcase. He resides in Traverse City and is one of several players that make the journey south to train and play with GR Crew Juniors.
His current club coach Lewis Robinson said, “Cam’s success and college commitment is a great story for everybody that has been involved with his development. He grew up playing in Traverse City then made the decision to commute and play with a very talented GR Crew team so he could pursue playing D1 soccer, which he has accomplished. He is very committed to training and works very hard on his game. He has improved massively in his time with the Crew and will continue this over the next two years. He is a very creative, technical player that will be a big success at WMU and he is a great player to have in any team”.
Cam is the third player from his team to commit this year to Western Michigan University, following Nate Hoover and Alex Ruddock, in joining the Broncos roster that already includes GR Crew alumni Chase Rau, Greg Timmer, Sean Conerty, and Edu Jiminez.
Cam will be back in action with his Crew team this spring as they participate in MRL Premier and search for their second state championship.
Congrats, and good luck Cam, from everybody at the Grand Rapids Crew Juniors.
