Great Falls Americans Junior A forward Brendan Jester has been nominated as one of 44 young men from the state of Alaska for admissions to one of the United States service academies for 2015 and the graduating class of 2019.

The Anchorage, Alaska native was nominated by United States Senator Mark Begich recently to attend the United States Air Force Academy located in Colorado Springs, Colo.

“Brendan is exactly the type of player that we look for in our program,” said Heimel. He has a great work ethic both on and off the ice and his character and integrity shine through on a regular basis. He doesn’t complain; he just shows up every day and does what we ask him to do as a coach, you couldn’t ask for anything more in a player.”

The 5-foot-11 forward is now playing for the Americans after spending time with the Glacier Nationals this season in the North American 3 Hockey League. He has scored two goals and picked up seven assists while playing for these teams this season.
