Today is the day, your future? #SigningDay

Putting Ink to paper is what is happening today, December 19th and will conclude 3 days later on Friday 12/21. Often referred to as signing day it is actually the (NLI) or National Letter of Intent. A binding agreement between the athlete and their parent(s) that make it known where they are attending post secondary education and sport. Today it is all about football and the young men in Colorado. The smiling faces are to be enjoyed.
