Four Brookside High athletes signed letters of intent Tuesday to attend colleges.

Matt Seekins, Brandon Bellman, Arin Pruitt and Ian Standen made it official Tuesday in a signing ceremony at the Brookside High library.

Seekins will attend Notre Dame College in South Euclid where he will play baseball.

A two-year varsity letterwinner and two-time team captain, he made first-team All-Lorain County and All-Patriot Athletic Conference as catcher for the Cardinals. He also earned a Scholar-Athlete Award and the school’s Silver Stick Award.

Bellman will play football for Otterbein University in Westerville.

A four-year letterwinner and two-time Cardinal team captain, Bellman earned a spot on the All-PAC first team and was also named honorable mention All-Ohio for his punting abilities.

Pruitt will attend John Carroll University in Cleveland Hts. and play football.

The four-year varsity letterwinner was first-team All-PAC and All-Lorain County and second-team all-district as a senior. He had 88 tackles while piling up 456 yards rushing with five TDs.

Standen is heading to Gannon University in Erie, Pa., where he will wrestle.

The multi-sport letterwinner was a three-time district qualifier in wrestling with over 110 career wins. He earned the team MVP award as a junior with a 43-13 record. In his senior season he placed first in one tournament and was named Most Valuable at the Cy Pinter Tournament in Elyria.
