Kyle Deremer returns for a second season as a graduate assistant with the Bluejay coaching staff. He enjoyed a stellar Bluejay career from 2008-10, earning First Team All-Missouri Valley Conference honors as a senior. He helped the Bluejays finish 13-5-2 and advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament in his final campaign.
Deremer was a pivotal member of the 2009 Bluejay defense that finished ranked 18th nationally with a 0.76 goals against average (18th in the NCAA). For his efforts, Deremer was named to the All-MVC Second Team.
In his first season on the Creighton squad (after earning All-West Coast Conference Honorable Mention as a freshman at Saint Mary’s in Moraga, Calif.), Deremer started 17 of the 18 matches he played in, finishing first among all Bluejay newcomer field players with 1,634 minutes on the field. He was a major component of the defense that set a then-school record with 13 shutouts, leading the NCAA with a .650 shutout percentage.
The three-time MVC Defensive Player of the Week and an MVC Scholar-Athlete, Deremer played semi-professional soccer in New Zealand for Wellington United following his graduation from Creighton. His team finished as league champions in the Champs Premier League.
Deremer, an Omaha native, led his Millard North squad to the State Championship in 2007, earning the 2007 Gatorade Nebraska Player of the Year Award.
