Deven Nelson (2018, 6’0″ CG Mesa Ridge) has verbally committed to the United States Air Force Academy. Deven is the first member of our 2018 class to commit. When asked why he chose to commit at this time, Deven responded, “As I was sitting with Coach Pilipovich and the staff, I felt like this was this place I wanted to be. I told the coaches, that I felt my collegiate life would be missing something if there was not a military aspect associated with it.”
As an organization, we are extremely proud of the young man Deven is. It has been wonderful to see him continue to develop as a student, an athlete, and most importantly a young man. Thank you to the Coaching Staff of the Air Force Academy for seeing these qualities in Deven and inviting him into such a prestigious environment with the opportunity to serve our great country. Integrity First, Service Before Self, Excellence in All We Do!
