    Fall National Signing Day Celebration

    We are making preparations for the Fall Signing Day event to be held on campus next month. It will be held in the CLC on Wednesday, November 13 at 8:30 a.m. This day coincides with the early signing date of the National Letter of Intent program (offered to prospects that will receive an athletics scholarship from an NCAA Division I or II institution) and includes all sports. We will recognize all college commitments (Walk-ons, Ivy League schools) not just scholarship-offered student-athletes. If you plan to accept an offer to participate in collegiate athletics, at any level and in any sport, we are interested in including you in this event. Please see Mr. Shaff in the athletics department to confirm your participation.

    We understand that some prospects have yet to come to an agreement with a school and/or have yet to decide where to commit. We will hold an identical event with the late signing date in April.

    If you are interested in participating, please confirm with Mr. Shaff your intent.
