For a number of high school football and soccer players, Wednesday is not your average Wednesday.

It is Signing Day.

Skyview, Union, Camas, La Center, and Mountain View have reported to The Columbian that they will have signing ceremonies for their athletes.

As far as football signees go, Jonathan Warner of Camas leads the Clark County class. The wide receiver is expected to sign with Penn State of the Big Ten Conference.

Closer to home, Portland State is expected to receive signatures from at least two Clark County athletes: Brandon Brody-Heim of Union and Kieran McDonagh of Skyview.

McDonagh is one of seven Skyview football players who are looking to continue their careers in college. Dylan Bratlie (Southern Oregon) Jonah Koreski (Montana Tech), Mo Morrison (Wayne State in Nebraska), and David Garlington (Southern Oregon) have made their decisions. Parker Henry and Riley Bockmier are down to a couple of options, according to Skyview coach Steve Kizer.

At Union, Gabe Rego appears headed to Central Washington. Kaben Humphrey-Butler is still weighing his options.

At Mountain View, Ryan Johnson has said yes to Montana.

In soccer, Olivia Lovell of Camas and Sheaffer Skadsen of Skyview expect to be Pac-12 rivals. Lovell said she will sign with Oregon State. Skadsen is headed to Arizona.

Skyview teammates Cassandra Ripley (Central Washington) and Rebecca Sikora (Portland State) also will sign Wednesday.

Also at Camas, Emily Ainsworth is going to Central Washington.

Over at Union, Kayla Vera is taking her skills to Southeast Louisiana State.

There also will be a ceremony for Jocelyn Burgess of La Center. She is planning on signing with Idaho soccer.

Some schools also will honor athletes of different sports who signed in November or will sign in the spring.

The February signing period is for football and soccer players.

The Columbian will report any athlete continuing on to a four-year college. Athletic directors and parents are encouraged to e-mail us with letter-of-intent information at sports@columbian.com.
