Varsity Football · Eli Jackson and Nick Bluemlein Sign to Play Football at Alma College


It was a great day for the Varsity Football team and Grayling High School as seniors Eli Jackson and Nick Bluemlein committed to Alma College to play Football for the Scots.

Eli is a three year starter for the Vikings on both sides of the ball primarily at Linebacker and Fullback. Eli has earned numerous awards during his career including being named Honorable Mention All-State by the Associated Press, Detroit Free Press and the Detroit News. Eli has also earned all-conference honors, been a Weekly Choice All-Area selection and was a TC Record Eagle All-Area Selection as well.

Nick Bluemlein has been a four year starter on the offensive and defensive line for the Vikings and has been a huge force for opposing teams to stop. He has been named all-conference multiple times and been a Weekly Choice selection for all area honors.

Both of these two young men will be greatly missed next year and we look forward to their future success at Alma College.
