Marysville Sharpshooter Steve Romesburg Signs with OCU

MARYSVILLE, OH - Steve Romesburg has signed a letter of intent to continue his academic and basketball careers at Ohio Christian University.

"I had looked at a few other schools including Malone, Tiffin, Lake Erie, and Muskingum," said Romesburg, who averaged 13.1 points and 3.6 rebounds per game for the Monarchs. "I like the coaches at Ohio Christian University and just felt like it was the best fit for me." Romesburg has decided that he will be majoring in Business at OCU.

Romesburg fits the bill as a player that can fill the basket. He leaves Marysville ranked 15th on the all-time boys scoring list at 725 career points. His 117 three pointers are the most ever for a Monarch player and place him as all-time leader at Marysville High School. As a senior he shot 46% from the field and 79% from the free throw line.

Romesburg earned Central District Honors from the Associated Press and was also named Special Mention OCC.

"Steve has the ability to find ways to score," said Monarch coach Ryan Grose. "He and our other seniors have put in a lot of time in the gym and it has really paid off. There are not many players that get to play at the next level and Steven's work has given him this opportunity."

Groce feels that OCU is a great place for Romesburg to continue his education and basketball. "Steven and his family did a lot of research and looked at several schools," he said. "Ohio Christian University will be be a great fit for what he wants to accomplish academically and with basketball."

Romesburg will join an OCU program coming off of their first ever NCCAA National Championship in March. The Trailblazers defeated Arlington Baptist to claim the 2013 NCCAA National Title, the first ever in program history.
