2020 Senior Spotlight Jacob Zeller, Bedford

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, Friday Night Victors will be honoring those 2020 graduating seniors who played for one of the FNV teams that played Michigan High School Football during the 2019 football season.

Jacob Zeller is the oldest of Steven and Kristen Zeller’s two children.  Jacob will graduate from Bedford High School with a 3.9952 grade point average, while receiving the “Presidential Award”.  Jacob was the starting center for the Bedford Mules varsity football team.  Jacob was named to the All-Conference First Team, All-Region First Team, Co-MVP Team Offensive Player of the year, All-Academic First Team and Honorable Mention to the Toledo All-Blade Team.  He was also named BSCN Player of the Game against Skyline this year, an honor not seen by many Offensive Lineman.

He also works part-time at Taco Bell and has earned his 2nd Degree Black Belt in Karate.  As a result of Jacob’s hard work, he was heavily recruited to play football at the next level.  Jacob will be attending Kalamazoo College this Fall to study PreMed, with the ultimate goal of becoming an Anesthesiologist.  He received the Lux Esto  Scholarship and The Mandelle Award and he will be playing football for the Hornets in the fall.

  1. Jacob,
    Congratulations on being honored as a FRIDAY NIGHT VICTOR! You certainly have earned the honor! What a pleasure it has been to watch you set goals for yourself and then watch how you went about achieving those goals! With your personal drive and determination, you earned your two Black Belts in Karate, and you grew and matured while playing football for the Bedford Lions. At Bedford High School, you excelled at all you pursued, both in the classroom and on the football field. All of this while also holding a job! We are so very PROUD of YOU and all you have accomplished! We enjoyed watching all your football games for the last several years and look forward to seeing some of your games on the Kalamazoo College Football team. We know you will devote your talents and devotion to the “Hornets” just like you have been devoted to the “Mules”. You are an amazing young man and we know that you have many goals in your sights. We are excited to watch you achieve those goals. We are very Proud Grandparents!!!
    Love, Grandma & Grandpa Bodine
