Ten Papermakers put pen to paper toward their future destinations after gradutation on National College Signing Day Wednesday.
“I’m excited to play football and not have my parents tell me to clean my room,” said Drew Clarkson after signing with Oregon State University.
It has been a crazy road up to this point in Clarkson’s life. Eleven months ago, he found out that he had stage 2 testicular cancer. Though surgery, rest and recuperation, Clarkson never lost sight of his goal. He was going to play football during his senior year.
Clarkson returned to the front line without losing a step. He helped the Papermakers become league champions again, return to the Tacoma Dome for the third year in a row and play for the state championship.
Five Camas football players confirmed their college destinations. Zach Eagle and Reilly Hennessey are both going to Eastern Washington University. Jorden Payne is on his way to Eastern Oregon and Jason Vailea will play for Western Oregon.
