Athletes set to sign with colleges of their choice




Happy National Letter of Intent Day.

Wednesday marks the first day that high school seniors in football, soccer, track and field, and cross country can sign letters of intent for college athletics.

Several schools in the region will be holding signing ceremonies today or in the coming days.

The Columbian hopes to attend a few today.

Some schools highlight athletes who are signing today and who also signed in the fall signing period in other sports.

Here are the athletes in our region we have learned will be signing this week or have committed to colleges, as well as athletes we did not report on in the fall.

Coaches and athletic directors, please let us know of any other athletes who have made their college decisions. E-mail us at
