College signing day is always a special day.
It’s a day when high school students realize their dreams of signing with a college athletic program.
Sometimes, local standouts sign with prominent athletic powers like USC, Oregon, Washington or Washington State.
More often, regional colleges are preferred landing spots for local stars. Seven of them are headed next fall to Central Washington, another seven to Western Oregon.
Western Washington, Eastern Washington, Southern Oregon and Idaho also had multiple local signees.
Then there are landing spots that are a little more obscure, like the University of Jamestown in North Dakota, where Heritage’s Cade Gardner will go to play football.
Or the schools can be more prestigious, like Brown University, where Mountain View’s Quinn Rooks will go to play baseball.
