National Signing Day marks the first opportunity for students to officially commit to play sports at their chosen universities.
The day is a culmination of years of hard work, practice, and playing time. Colleges offer a very limited number of spots on their rosters to those athletes they believe can bring needed athletic talent to their playing fields. In addition, those schools and the athletes see a cultural fit and share an expectation of academic success.
It is the combination of opportunity, culture, talent and academics that merge together in providing these select few with the chance to continue playing sports at a higher level.
Today, the following Patriot athletes signed:
Bri Sandoval – Soccer – Columbia College
Chelsea Garrison – Soccer – Montreat College
Kellan O’Hara – Soccer – Presbyterian College
Delanie Mortier – Golf – Limestone College
Drew Yniesta – Baseball – Erskine College
Clayton Nestor – Baseball – Patrick Henry
