Sherle Signs NLI with Broncos
March 30, 2016

BOISE, Idaho - Boise State women’s soccer added to its 2016 recruiting class with the signing of Treasure Valley native Raimee Sherle (pronounced RAY-me / Shirley) to a National Letter of Intent. Sherle, from Meridian, Idaho, was twice named Idaho Player of the Year and was selected to the 2015 High School All-American Game. She is a four-star prospect according to TopDrawerSoccer.com.

Sherle finished her career at Rocky Mountain High School with 100 goals and 62 assists. She is the all-time leader at Rocky Mountain in goals, assists and game-winning goals.

“There is something intangible and undeniable about the goal-scoring ability Raimee possesses,” said head coach Jim Thomas. “She has dynamic athleticism, creativity and improvisational skills that enable her to finish an incredibly wide variety of situations we regularly create. In addition Raimee is a tremendous distributer of the ball gaining regular and important assists at both the club and High School level. Lastly the trifecta is complete when you take into account the person Raimee is becoming: a tremendous academic, caring and passionate person who will fit in perfectly with the culture and people we have at Boise State Soccer.”

One of the most decorated prep soccer players in Idaho history, Sherle was named the Idaho Gatorade Player of the Year as a sophomore after leading the Southern Idaho Conference in goals scored. She would go on to lead the league in goals each of her final three seasons and added the top assist mark as a senior.

Sherle was named first-team all-state three times, including her player of the year selections in 2013 and 2015 from the Idaho High School Soccer Coaches Association. She led the Grizzlies to the state quarterfinals three times, including a third-place finish in 2014. Last season, Rocky Mountain took fourth.

“Ramie's versatility means that throughout her career she may fulfill multiple roles, but there is little doubt she will leave an indelible mark throughout her four years here. Initially my hope is to take advantage of her goal-scoring capability. We recruited diligently to bring in players that will enable that area of our team to be more successful; Raimee is a huge part of that effort.”

Off the field, Sherle was class president each of her four years at RMHS and earned All-Academic SIC honors.

The addition of Sherle also bolsters the Broncos’ recent pipeline from Meridian’s Rocky Mountain High School. She joins Brooke Heidemann and Addison Standlee as former Grizzlies who made the jump to Boise State. Heidemann recently wrapped up her illustrious career last season becoming the first all-region honoree in program history and a four-time All-Mountain West First Team selection. Standlee, who played with Sherle for three seasons at RMHS, started 16 matches last year as a freshman and will be looked to as a leader during her sophomore campaign.

“There must be something in the water,” Thomas said. “While Raimee is blessed with great potential, the likes of Brooke and Addy have already garnished tremendous return for our program. Should Raimee fulfill that tremendous upside, the future will be as sunny as a July afternoon in the valley for Boise State Soccer!”
