National Signing Day

Six exceptional high school student athletes from Spring Branch ISD, including a senior who will play football for Harvard University, signed letters of intent to play at major colleges and universities across the nation in the year ahead.

National Signing Day, as it is known, was conducted Feb. 5 to celebrate and honor talented high school athletes headed to play sports at the college level.

Zach Miller of Stratford High School signed his national letter of intent to play football in the D1-AA Ivy League Conference for Harvard University. The 18-year-old has played safety during all four years of his school career at Stratford.

Miller helped get the Stratford High football team to UIL 4A State-Semi Finals this past season and, aside from his athletic ability, he’s noted for both his tremendous community involvement and academic success.

“I am thrilled to be playing for Harvard this coming fall. You know I never dreamed I could go to such an incredible school, but football has given me that opportunity. In short, I am getting to play the sport that I love while also attending a great school so I couldn’t be more pumped,” Zach said.

Zach Miller was one of six high school students from Spring Branch that signed national letters of intent on Feb. 5. Two other SBISD seniors committed to play college sports earlier this year. Eight signed athletes are listed below:
