Rebecca Oser was surrounded by teachers, friends, family and teammates as she committed to play soccer at Stetson University on National Signing Day
Within the first ten minutes on a tour of Stetson University’s campus, Rebecca Oser knew that it was the school where she wanted to continue her education and her soccer career. On February 1, Oser officially put this decision into action when she signed her letter of intent with the Hatters.
Oser was surrounded by teachers, friends, family and her Bulls soccer family when she signed. “It means so much to me that I have everyone here to support me,” said Oser. To Coach Sue Peet and her teammates she continued, “Thank you for a great year. This year was probably my favorite out of all of them. Even though things didn’t end how we wanted them to, it’s still my favorite.”
While at Bloomingdale, Oser played four years on the soccer team and helped lead the Bulls to three straight regional semifinal appearances and twice earned All-County honors. She also played flag football for two years and is a member of the Spanish Honor Society. There is no doubt that Oser will have continued success playing soccer at the college level.
“I am very excited about signing and happy that I get to take playing soccer at the next level of competition,” said Oser. “I was very comfortable when I toured Stetson and I already knew Coach Orlowski. I enjoy the smaller school environment. It’s a perfect it.”
The signing also marked the end of an era for Bloomingdale’s girls’ soccer program, as she is the third and final Oser to play soccer for the Bulls. “It’s the last of the Oser’s,” said Peet. “Congratulations, I am proud of all your accomplishments and I know you’ll be successful. Just remember that the real work starts now.”
