Six players sign letters of intent for college Six Rockford Rams football players were among athletes who signed letters of intent with the college or university of their choice at Celebration Cinema Wednesday, Jan. 31. The National Letter of Intent Day is the traditional day for athletes to make the commitment to continue their athletic career after their high school days are complete. For Rockford, kicker Steve Mette will play for Hillsdale College along with quarterback Mark LaPrairie. Ben Braden, Rockford’s six-foot, seven-inch and 320-pound offensive tackle, will be Rockford Coach Ralph Munger’s first Big Ten recruit, as he signed to play at the University of Michigan. Linebacker Anthony DeDamos and tight end Aaron Weston both head to Wayne State University. Linebacker Matt Boonstra will continue his athletic and academic career at Northern Michigan University. Coach Munger was understandably proud of all the Rockford players and praised the talent they have contributed to the Rams team.
