National Signing Day

Five Memorial and Stratford high seniors signed letters of intent Nov. 14 to play college sports next year at institutions of higher learning ranging from the University of Texas to Boston University.

At Memorial High, Kacey Clemens made news by deciding publicly that Texas was the place to be for him next fall.

“Texas said, ‘Picture yourself on the mound under the lights in front of 8,000 people as a freshman,’” he told the Houston Chronicle. “That’s a pretty good gig right there.”

Kacey, who has been a standout in baseball and football both, is a right-handed pitcher and first baseman. He is the third son of retired professional pitcher Roger Clemens, a seven-time Cy Young Award winning pitcher.

Other Memorial signees were baseball outfielder Walker Pennington, who will attend Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, and Danielle Yoon, who plans to swim competitively at Boston University.

Stratford High signees included softball players Macey Smith, who is headed to the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and Lacie Stevens, who signed with Texas Tech University.
