On Wednesday, February 4th, our school recognized 21 outstanding student athletes for their academic and athletic achievements as SCHS hosted the annual Letter of Intent Ceremony, congratulating them for committing to universities across the country. 

“San Francisco State is going to be amazing!” Senior Varsity Baseball player Nathan Beckley said. “I cannot wait for the next chapter of my life.”

Even though it was a long and difficult scouting process with the lack of exposure from season cancelations, these exceptional students demonstrated dedication and eagerness as they still managed to catch the eyes of a variety of pristine and well known campuses across the US.

 “Now that I am committed after this unconventional scouting season, I am so relieved with this weight lifted off my shoulders,” Senior Varsity Swimmer Stella Coplend said. “I am looking forward to this next step and cant wait to head off to Arizona!”

The following is a list of all of our exceptional signees and the campuses they have committed to:
