Follmer Commits

Lincoln Stars forward/defenseman Kyle Follmer has made his college choice. He will be attending Northern Michigan University in the fall of 2008. Follmer will spend a second season in Lincoln, and third in the USHL overall. As a rookie, Kyle spent the year with Sioux City and notched 32 points. Kyle spent most of last season as one of Lincoln's assistant captains.


There were rumors of Kyle potentially heading up to St. Cloud State this fall, but those can now be swept under the rug.

EDIT: Heisenberg has him listed as 2007 or 2008 now.


A semi-related note, Chicago's Ryan Raven has committed to Mercyhurst for this fall.

interesting considering all anyone ever heard with Follmer was SCSU.

Figured it would be long before the negative comments would start. Pretty sad, actually.

really, well classes start the 28th so you'd think we'd know by a week or so...

Heisenberg has him listed as 07 or 08, though it doesn't make much sense to me.

It's the truth because some anonymous internet windbag said it? Get off the kid's jock.

anonymous? look at the top of the post...any little bit of searching can follow the screen name...your post has anonymous above it, not mine

let's see...assault on a teammate last year...should have been tried for that

any idea why he was shipped out of Sioux City & Ohio before that? ask former teammates & billets

assault on a teammate, are you kidding? Then every hockey player in the USHL who's ever been in a fight should be tried for assault.

Continuing to beat on your opponent/teammate after he's down is assault.

nowhere in that article does it say "he continued to beat on his teammate after he was down."

-Ryan Lowery
"It's pretty common for there to be fights," Lowery said. "It was more that we just got really competitive.

"We both got kind of angry at each other."


there you have it. other than this practice fight, Follmer has done a good job staying out of trouble in Lincoln. What he's done in other cities is done and yes I do know what he's done. He came to Lincoln with baggage and so far has been behaved, so you can stop trashing the kid about stuff you don't even know what happened because unless you are a Stars player, you weren't at practice.

Yeti said...

So Follmer is a criminal because Lowery ran his mouth, and can't fight?

Some folks just love to hate on these kids. I don't understand it.

no kidding yeti, someone even said Lowery started it, so you know what charge him with assault too. What a joke.

im a former teammate of kyles in sc, and got to know his family very well. hes a great kid, great sense of humor, and would take a bullet for any single one of his teammates. and most of reputation is built on rumors. talk to the kid for five minutes, i dare you. cuz you'll have a different view about him.

thanks a lot for posting Muskie player. It's great to hear from someone who didn't judge the kid before meeting him.

what I'm trying to figure out is why is Sec A crazy so obsessed with Kyle? What did Kyle ever personally do to him?

Section a crazy, needs to get a life, I can't believe he can be so obcessed with 1 person, He doesn' know anything that happened in SC
and from what I know he left Ohio because he didn't like it there, and, I know he got along with his billet families. So don' confuse the truth, with your negativity at him. Get the truth before you first.
