Bernhard Raimann Early Life:
Raimann was raised in Steinbrunn, Austria, where he was born. He started playing American football at the age of 14 for the Vienna Vikings’ youth team.
Raimann first attended the Ballsportgymnasium Wien before joining Delton-Kellogg High School in Delton, Michigan, for his junior year as an exchange student.
After graduating from Ballsportgymnasium Wien, Raimann returned to Austria to complete his compulsory service in the Austrian military. Shortly afterwards, he committed to play college football at Central Michigan University.
In his first two seasons at Central Michigan, Raimann played as a tight end. Interestingly, he caught 20 passes for 164 yards during his first two seasons.
His sophomore year saw him switching to the offensive tackle position where he started all six games for the Chippewas. Sadly, the COVID-19 pandemic shortened the 2020 season and halted his continuous excellent performance for the season.
In 2021, Raimann was named the Offensive Player of the Year for the Mid-American Conference by Pro Football Focus.
