Uni High's Renner lands spot on 'The Bachelorette'

The new season of "The Bachelorette" includes 2008 Uni High grad Mike Renner.

A member of The News-Gazette's 2008 All-Area Boys' Basketball Team, Renner, 27, currently is an analyst for Pro Football Focus living in Cincinnati.

Renner is Uni High's all-time leading scorer with 1,519 points, which ranks eighth on the area's career list. He went on to Notre Dame and graduated in 2012.

The 14th season of "The Bachelorette" kicks off May 28 on ABC.

Renner is one of 28 men trying to win over Becca Kufrin, the winner on last season's "The Bachelor."

“In high school he was quiet but his current job has given him confidence on camera,” said Joel Beesley, his basketball coach at Uni High. “Mikey is a closer. You know he is smarter than all of them so you never count out an Illinek in a competition.”
