A pair of Enumclaw High athletes recently signed letters-of-intent, securing their collegiate plans.
Keegan Ulrich signed as a “preferred walk-on” and will play football at Boise State University.
In Boise, he will join a Bronco program that rose to national prominence under Chris Peterson and has continued to roll with Bryan Harsin. Since the 2000 season, the Broncos have the top winning percentage among all the nation’s larger schools; by winning at an .842 clip during that span, Boise State is a notch ahead of No. 2 Ohio State and No. 3 Oklahoma.
The Broncos play in the Mountain West Conference and, when at home, play on the famous blue turf of Albertson’s Stadium.
Following his senior season at Enumclaw High, the 6-foot-4, 260-pound Ulrich was a first-team, all-league offensive lineman. He was a second-team selection following his junior year.
Trevor Cassell signed to play baseball at Skagit Valley College.
Cassell, who has a no-hitter on his EHS resumé, is in the midst of his senior season in a Hornet uniform. He received honorable mention last season when league coaches picked their all-league teams.
The Cardinals, from their main campus in Mount Vernon, Washington, compete in the Northwest Athletic Conference. The NWAC counts 36 member schools in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and British Columbia. Skagit Valley competes in the NWAC North Region and is having a rough spring. The Cards were 5-14 through games of last week.
