Mount Si’s Sotelo makes decision about where he’ll play his college football, and it’ll be official today

Today is a big day at Mount Si and Cedarcrest High Schools, as senior athletes sign college letters of intent.

We’ve already told you during the course of the school year about a couple of signings, and we now have another one we can report. Expected to sign a national letter of intent today to play football for Western Oregon University is Mount Si High School senior tight end David Sotelo.

Sotelo, who caught 13 passes for 102 yards and two touchdowns last fall for Mount Si, who finished 7-3 on the season, chose the Wolves over a couple of other schools, including WOU’s conference rival Simon Fraser, in Canada. Western Oregon is an NCAA Division II school located in Monmouth, OR, southwest of Portland, and the past four years featured on its offensive line another Mount Si grad, Brad Christensen.

“I just really felt like home there,” Sotelo said. “Out of all the schools that have offered me, they just felt like the best fit.”

Sotelo verbally committed to the school a few weeks ago, and joins fellow senior Jesiah Irish in making a college decision; Irish recently signed with Oregon State University, just down the road in Corvallis. Also expected to announce a decision this morning is fellow Wildcat senior Tank Brewster, and he is also looking at a similar slate of schools as Sotelo did – Western Oregon and Simon Fraser among them.

When Sotelo hits the field in that red and white Wolves jersey this fall, he had this promise for Mount Si football fans. “They’re going to see a player that’s going to grow and develop to be one of the best tight ends that they’ve had in their program,” he said. Sotelo plans on majoring in business at the college.
