The Greater Miami Conference Signing Day event will be held at the Sharonville Convention Center on Wednesday at 1 p.m.

It’s an annual happening for the GMC to honor its best football players as they sign national letters of intent and prepare to head off to the next level.

Beacon Orthopaedics is the host, and the public is invited.

Five Butler County coaches — Chad Murphy of Hamilton, Jason Krause of Fairfield, Rick Haynes of Lakota East, Don Simpson of Middletown and Larry Cox of Lakota West — will speak and introduce their committed players.

Among those players is West senior outside linebacker Xavier Peters, who recently committed to Florida State. He was previously committed to Kentucky.
