National Letter of Intent signing day is just around the corner.
On Wednesday, Feb. 4, high school athletes — mostly football
players — from around the country will put pen to paper and make
their college destinations known.
In Kitsap, there are usually a few football players mixed in
with a handful of girls soccer players who’ll hold signing day
Crosspoint’s Desere’e Doty, who is heading to Grand Canyon
University for women’s soccer, will have a gathering Wednesday at
the school. Central Kitsap football player Brion Anduze, who is
heading to the University of Arizona, is also planning something
for next week.
If you are an athlete or parent of an athlete who is planning a
signing day ceremony next week, send us a message at
firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 360-792-9200.
