Two Messmer High School football players receive full athletic scholarships

February 15, 2014

On Wednesday, February 5, 2014, Messmer High School was pleased to announce that two of its graduating seniors have been awarded full athletic football scholarships to pursue their college careers. Senior Jonathan Carson will be attending Central Michigan University and Senior Tywan Ramsey is headed to South Dakota State University; both are set to enroll this fall.
Both Carson and Ramsey played key roles for the Messmer/Shorewood football team last year, leading the Greyhounds to their first ever Midwest Classic Conference title and a 7-3 overall record. Carson and Ramsey earned Midwest Classic Conference Offensive Player and Defensive Player of the Year honors, respectively. Carson was also named to the WFCA All-State team as a tight end.
The Messmer/Shorewood football team is a unique collaboration that was formed in 2001 between Messmer, a private, urban school and Shorewood, a public, suburban school. No Messmer student has been awarded a full athletic football scholarship since before the collaboration. To have two students earn college scholarships in one year is more than serendipitous; it is a testament to how far this team has come in the past decade.
