OMAHA, Neb. – Rylie Jacobsen signed a national letter of intent to play soccer at Buena Vista University in Storm Lake, Iowa. Jacobsen is a three-year letterwinner at Treynor (Iowa) High School. She plays on the Roja High School team coached by Mike O’Dell and Dave Henson.

During her three seasons with the Cardinals, Jacobsen started all 49 games. She tallied 31 goals and 16 assists and helped lead the Cardinals to a combined 39-11.

Jacobsen also earned Western Iowa Conference 1st Team and Class 1A West All-District 2nd Team honors during her career.

Coach Mike O’Dell’s comments on Rylie’s commitment
“Rylie is a fantastic player. She was referred to me by a teammate, and it paid off. She is on her way, but as she continues to work, Rylie has the potential to be a dominant player at Buena Vista. She sets the bar very high for herself and is in constant search of how to reach it, true Kaizen!”

Buena Vista Coach Benton Frayne’s comments on Rylie’s commitment
“We are very excited to have Rylie joining the Buena Vista University Women’s soccer team! Rylie’s club and high school experience have prepared her for the college game. We are looking forward to Rylie’s vision and individual flair in the attacking third.”

Jacobsen on her commitment
“I’m very excited to play at the college level. I have dreamed of this since I was a little kid and worked super, super hard for this. BVU is close to home and a small school. When I looked at the program, it seems like a good fit for me.”

    Rylie has been a fantastic teammate and asset to her high school soccer team. She has been the embodiment of dedication, hard work, and persistence. Her eprseverence on the field and her character off the field prove why Rylie will be going places. Although we did not make an appearance at the Iowa State soccer tournament, I’m almost positive she would have led her team there had she been able to play her senior season. I am extremely blessed to have coached Rylie and can’t wait to see what she can do in the future.
