National Signing Day is a huge career landmark for high school athletes. Coaches, parents, and athletes who have dared to dream big through the grueling years of training and competition, are gratified when college recruitment offers are made and accepted.
On February 6, twenty Rock Canyon High School (RCHS) athletes’ dreams became a reality. Eleven boys and nine girls from RCHS put pen to paper and signed up to join their future college teams.
RCHS Athletic Director Tom Brieske said, “I think it is great that we have so many student athletes signing on to compete at the next level. These kids have all worked very hard over the years and have been extremely fortunate to have quality coaches to push them and loving parents to support them in their athletic and academic pursuits. I wish them all the luck in their future endeavors, and I know they will find success!”
