FORT IRWIN, Calif. — Fort Irwin student-athlete E.J. Ane signed a letter of intent Feb. 9 to join the San Jose State Spartans and continue his education at San Jose State University this fall.

Growing up in a military family, Ane, the son of Master Sgt. Eteru Ane and Mrs. Fionna Ane lived in Germany, Washington, Texas and now California. The Silver Valley High School senior was recruited by numerous universities and was named a School Winner by the national Wendy’s High School Heisman competition in October for his excellence in the classroom, on the football field and in his community. He credits his faith and his parents for guiding him and helping him achieve his goals throughout it all.

“My work ethic comes from both my parents –they’re hard-driven workers – they won’t stop until what needs to get done gets done,” he said in October.
