Wes Obermeier Excited to Make Division I Dream Come True

Next fall, Gibson Southern senior Wes Obermeier will be playing NCAA Division I football.

The 6'6" Titans receiver committed to Ball State last weekend, and he's excited to play at the next level.

"Ball State is a school where I can go and everybody loves football just like here at Gibson Southern," said Obermeier.

"It's kind of just a dream come true for all of it to happen so fast."

With Obermeier playing in the Mid-American Conference next year, it will mark the first Gibson Southern football player to play at the Division I level during head coach Nick Hart's tenure.

"It's great for him, it's great for our program and great recognition," said Hart.

"I just couldn't be happier or prouder of him."

Obermeier is usually split out wide in the Titans offense, but the 235 lbs receiver will make the switch to tight end once he starts his career at Ball State.
