BOISE, Idaho - Boise State women's soccer head coach Steve Lucas announced, Thursday, Brooke Heidemann of Meridian, Idaho signed a National Letter of Intent to join the Broncos. Heidemann was a senior midfielder at Rocky Mountain High School last fall.

"Brooke is a very technical central player who has been on some successful club teams and done a good job," Lucas said. "She is going to have a chance to come in right away and get on the field."

Heidemann was a three-year starter at Rocky Mountain, headed by coach Donal Kaehler. Heidemann helped the Grizzlies to become 5A Idaho State champions in 2011 as well as second- and third-place finishes in 2009 and 2010, respectively. She was selected to the all-conference team in 2009 and 2010. In 2011, she was named Southern Idaho Conference Player of the Year and was selected to the All-Region VIII Team.

At the club level, Heidemann played for Les Bois from U11-U16 and switched to FC Nova for her U17-U18 seasons. The soon-to-be Bronco won state titles twice at the U15 level (once because she played up a year) as well as at U16 and U17.

"I chose Boise State because it is a great school that offers many opportunities both in soccer and academically," said Heidemann. "I also chose Boise State because it will keep my close to my family."

Heidemann is one of two Idaho products in the 2012 class to sign with the Broncos. High school teammate Whitney Peterson will also head to Boise for her collegiate career.
