Dana Hills honored eight student-athletes continuing their athletic careers in college on National Signing Day on Wednesday, Feb. 2.

Dolphins baseball was well represented with three players signing. Grant Faris—son of Dana Hills baseball coach and athletic director Tom Faris—signed with Washington State University; Ryan Edwards signed with Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, Idaho; and Jack Moulin signed with Regis University in Denver, Colorado.

Dana Hills baseball was also represented with one of two Dolphins football signees. Dana Hills quarterback and pitcher Bo Kelly signed with Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, and Dana Hills tight end James Allemann signed with the University of Utah.

The Allemann family also doubled up on Signing Day, as Caroline Allemann signed with the University of Redlands to play tennis.

Signing Day continued to be a family affair with Dana Hills. In addition to the Faris family and Allemann family, the Hoff family also earned a signee, as Tatum Hoff, daughter of girls volleyball coach Tom Hoff, signed with Long Beach State, her father’s alma mater, to play volleyball.

Dana Hills softball also had a signee, with Alexa Pfutzenreuter signing with Westcliff University in Irvine.
