Reymann signs to play soccer at Kentucky

Worthington Kilbourne High School senior Charlie Reymann signed a letter of intent Feb. 8 to play men’s soccer at the University of Kentucky.

“I pretty much made my decision last spring,” he said. “I like the coaching staff and the program. All the players interacted well and it just seems to be a great fit for me.”

Reymann was first-team all-OCC-Central Division, first-team all-district and second-team all-state as a junior while helping the Wolves win a Division I district title.

He chose to play with the Columbus Crew Academy as a senior rather than with Kilbourne.

“When I was with the Academy as a sophomore, they moved me to left back and I fell in love with that position,” Reymann said. “Even though I played forward at Kilbourne, I think this is my natural position.”

“I would’ve loved to have Charlie for his senior season, but I understand that he moved onto a higher level of play,” Kilbourne coach Jon Sprunger said. “I’ve had him in class and he’s a great kid. I’m happy for him and proud of him.

“He was like 60 or 65 percent of our scoring as a junior and our team MVP. He would’ve made a big difference for us last season, but he did what he thought was best for him and you can’t be too upset with that.”
