Bridgewater-Emery/Ethan all-state selection Jamin Arend announced his commitment to play football for Dakota Wesleyan University on Wednesday.

Arend ran for 1,258 yards and 22 touchdowns this past season, while scoring a total of 29 touchdowns in five different ways (rushing, receiving, kick return, punt return and interception return).

The 6-foot, 185-pound running back ran for 2,985 yards during his career, but was a jack-of-all-trades. Arend compiled 5,254 all-purpose yards and 55 touchdowns, while making 226 tackles and 10 interceptions as a defensive back.

Arend leaves the Bridgewater-Emery/Ethan with 18 program records, helping the Seahawks to a 32-13 record over the past four years and back-to-back trips to the Class 11B state championship game.
