Jimmy Siers Commits to Brown University


Click here for the USHL article.

Even though Jimmy Siers isn't on the Stars roster, I thought this story was worth blogging about considering how much of a fan favorite Jimmy was during his time in Lincoln.  He was one of those guys who played every shift like it was his last.  He is a player you couldn't help but root for, and I'm very happy to see him land at a very good school.  BellTolls wrote an article about Jimmy back in November of last year in which he brought up the fact that Siers had a 4.0 grade average in high school.  To get into an Ivy league school like Brown University is no small task.  It takes smarts, and Jimmy obviously has them.

Congrats to Jimmy!  Well deserved.

Thanks for posting this articles. Jimmy is a very classy guy on and off the ice. He deserves the best and he is getting it. Jimmy thanks for everything you did while you were in Lincoln. Your playing on the ice was so much fun to watch. You did play every shift like it was your last, that's the way it should be - hard work and dedication and with that hard work and dedication and of course a 4.0 you got the best that any player can ask for. Good Luck at Brown.

When are the Star players going to start committing? Does any of them have colleges looking at them? - haven't heard a thing about our players.

Anonymous, good question. I don't believe any player that started this year in a Stars jersey and is still with the team has made a college commitment this season. It's a little odd. Some came in already committed and we've traded for some committed players.

Congrats to Jimmy, best of luck. I was glad to see Waterloo was able to put you in to a position to achieve your goal.

Congrats Jimmy, You gave us somthing to cheer about everytime you took the ice. No one on the team made his checks count as much as you did.

That is correct, but all of those players committed before the regular season started.

Smartest move you made Jimmy was getting out of Lincoln to another team where you would be noticed for your play. Best of Luck on a great move and a great future program !

regardless of how you think our team is playing this year, we still are getting noticed, maybe not always for good things but people know that we will always be a good team to watch for good players.

time to mention another former star... lets all be happy that we had david backes as one of our most impressive players.
today he scored a goal against switzerland in the olympics to help the USA win 3-1!!!!

quote from david..."Just the love for the game that they have here in Canada and Vancouver, and the stage that it's on, it's pretty cool," Backes said.

i know which was my fav... has something to do with our good guy flipping the bad guy over his head!!!

Did not know Jimmy was such a scholar, however it does not surprise me. His new coach said it best, that Jimmy brings something to the ice that doesnt always show up on the score sheet. If his physical size was as big as his heart he would have already been drafted into the NHL. Have met him off the ice and his personality (if possible) almost overwhelms his ability on the ice. Such a great kid, this guy has earned everything he has gotten. I miss him greatly on our ice, but am happy he has had such success on Waterloo's. Class act. Wish him much greatness in his future.
