Rebel Alums: Where are They Now

In our third installment of Rebel Alums: Where are They Now, we take a look at two-time All-American Bram ten Berge.

2009 was a banner year for Bram ten Berge capped by winning the Boyd McWhorter SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award as the top male student-athlete in the entire league.

The two-time All-American ended the year ranked No. 3 in the nation in doubles and spent 14 weeks ranked No. 1 in the nation. The All-SEC first team selection and team captain helped the Rebels advance to the NCAA Elite Eight for the ninth time and earn a final national ranking of No. 4. Ten Berge also helped lead the Rebels to the SEC regular season championship with an undefeated league record, their second consecutive SEC Tournament Championship and their eighth straight SEC West title. In addition, he teamed with Jonas Berg to capture the ITA All-American Championship in doubles in the fall of 2008.


In 2008, ten Berge paired with Matthias Wellermann to reach the semifinals at the NCAA Doubles Championships, earning All-America honors. The duo just missed out on making it an all Ole Miss final and assuring the Rebels of the title.


Additional academic honors include an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship in 2009 and induction into the prestigious Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society in 2008. Ten Berge was also a four-time ITA Scholar-Athlete and the 2006 SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year for men's tennis.


Ten Berge graduated from the University of Mississippi in 2009 with a degree in Classics and in December of 2015 earned his PhD. in Classical Studies at the University of Michigan.


He is currently a living in Holland, Michigan and is a professor at Hope College.

    How can you have five straight top 25 recruiting classes and look as bad as Ole Miss has this year. Easy lack of coaching fundamentals. Look at Mason at Vandy, nothing but 2 and 3 star recruits out of high school and he developers players that want to win. Hugh freeze has 3, 4 & 5 recruits and he expects them to win because of what they were in High School. Mr. Freeze you have not been teaching the fundamentals of football or winning in life. Mr. Freeze you have quit on your players because you have some false expectations of what they are instead of what you can develop in them. Either do your job or quit. Oh yea, please quit running your smoke and mirrors offense, everyone has figured it out. Run a physical offense that can open up holes for your running backs and then your pass attack want require 12 are 14 four and five star receivers. Mr. Freeze you have problems and you need to know that you are not smarter than the rest of the coaches in the SEC.

    Not every pass can be caught. Too low, too short whatever. Not every Kelly pass is perfect. Records were broken by receivers also. But they sre not going to catch every ball thrown. The loss to Auburn was not one players fault. You win or lose as a team.
