Mt. Pleasant forward signs with Firebirds
ROSCOMMON - Kaleb House, a slender 6-foot-5 forward from Mt. Pleasant and an athlete with a pedigree, has signed a letter of intent to play basketball for Kirtland Community College, coach and athletic directer Glen Donahue announced recently.
A 2001 graduate of Mt. Pleasant High, House is the grandson of Roy Kramer, the former Central Michigan University coach who led the Chippewas to a Division II national championship before leaving to become head coach at Vanderbilt. Kramer currently is commissioner of the Southeastern Conference.
I had been looking for a place to play and someone I know mentioned Coach Donahue, House said. Everybody knows hes really a good coach. I saw a couple of games this season, and I really like their style.
House took a year off to help on the family farm, but looks forward to resuming his career next season with the Firebirds.
Hell need to hit the weight room, Donahue said, but hell help us next year and has a great future as a student-athlete. Hes a good ballplayer and a fine young man.
