Broersma set to take over at Mona Shores

Junior wide receiver hits the camp circuit and talks the upcoming season and being the go-to guy with Asantay Brown having departed.

As Mona Shores went through 7 on 7 camps this summer, it appeared the Sailors had a new go-to receiver.

With Asantay Brown moved onto Western Michigan, junior Hunter Broersma looks primed to move into the role of playmaker out wide for Mona Shores.

"I hope to be kind of the go-to man," he said. "That was it seemed to be in the 7 on 7."

Broersma and his teammates camped at Michigan State, Toledo and Western Michigan for 7 on 7 tournaments, while he also did a one-day camp with the Spartans.

"It was a pretty good experience," he said. "It was good to compare myself to other kids out there."

At Michigan State, he said the competition was tough, but he felt he showed his speed to the coaches – and thanks to quarterback Tyree Jackson, he got plenty of chances to show off.

"That was fun," he said. "It got easy."

He got the chance to look around some of the Michigan State facilities while on campus as well, but also took away applications on the field moving into next season.

"Mostly more of the little things like hand placement on a press release," he said.

With Jackson at the helm of the offense, Broersma said there is a lot of reason to be confident as a receiver for Mona Shores.

"If you get the route down, the ball is going to be coming in the place you want it to make a play," he said.

But as the Sailors chase their second straight playoff appearance – also the second in school history – Broersma said he is just excited to get going.

"I am excited about pretty much everything," he said. "It is hard to put it down to one thing, I am just counting down the days until our first game."
