USFooty Macquarie University Scholarship Announced

USFooty, Macquarie University, and the Macquarie Kookaburras are excited to announce that the University of WisconsinEau Claire‘s James Brunmeier is the winner of the 2005 Macquarie University USAFL Scholarship. 


James plays for the Milwaukee Bombers and is also a member of the Revolution, USFooty’s National team.  Off the field, James is a dedicated student with a 3.35 GPA as a senior majoring in German.  By winning this scholarship, the Brunmeier family claims a unique double with Jared Brunmeier winning the 2004 AFL Scholarship to train with Essendon.


According to James, “Initially, I had mixed emotions. I was undeniably happy that I have been given such a great opportunity to play footy in Australia as well as study there. At the same time I was sad because I would be leaving my good friends behind, many of whom will graduate while I am away. The reality that I actually got the scholarship did not set in until a few days after I had talked with USFooty President Mark Wheeler. It suddenly hit me, “I am going to Australia — in less than three months — to play footy.” I got a rush of adrenaline and just wanted to jump up and run around. My professor would have frowned on that since I was sitting in his chemistry lecture. Needless to say I don’t remember anything from that lecture.”


Jared Brunmeier played with the Hampton Rovers AFC for the first half of the 2004 season.
