National Signing Day Results in 20 Student-Athlete Commitments

Twenty Spring Branch ISD student-athletes signed letters of intent to play athletics for colleges and universities across the United States during National Signing Day, which was held Feb. 4.

Many other student-athletes signed letters of intent earlier in the school year, and a number of students may still make commitments later this spring. SBISD’s student signers on Feb. 4 joined the initial sport signing period that includes football, cross country, field hockey, soccer, track & field and water polo. District athletes signed to swim, dive and play softball, too.

SBISD high schools celebrated the accomplishments of these student-athletes with special ceremonies and celebrations held on their respective campuses.

“We are excited to have the chance to celebrate National Signing Day with our student-athletes and their families, coaches, and teammates. To have the chance to continue one’s athletic career while attending college is an achievement of the highest order for any high school athlete. It is certainly a proud day for Spring Branch ISD Athletics,” said Paige Hershey, SBISD’s Executive Director of Athletics.

“It’s a testament to their talent and hard work, and to the incredible support of their families and coaches, that these students will now advance to the college and university classrooms and playing venues they have chosen. These commitments are also an indication of the strength of the programs offered within our community: from our middle school and high school programs, to the grass roots efforts of local youth sports organizations like SBMSA and other developmental programs.”
