Student athletes sign letters of intent

Thirteen student athletes signed letters of intent on the morning of April 15.

Thirteen seniors woke up a little bit earlier on April 15 in order to be sure to get to the high school by 7:30 to sign to their future college. These students were signed to a variety of universities, which sponsored a variety of sports. Many sports were represented during this ceremony, from basketball and cheer to track and soccer. Each student athlete was able to commit to a school to play their chosen sport in the upcoming years of college.

Senior Gabe Sams signed to Emporia State University in Emporia, Kansas for track.

“Signing was a great experience,” Gabe said. “I’m so glad to finally, officially, be committed to Emporia State. It was awesome having everyone there, and we all loved the support.”

Senior Trenton Cantrell signed for boys’ basketball at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma.

“I woke up late, but very excited,” Cantrell said. “I knew I was making the right decision because I got a good night’s sleep. I wasn’t nervous about anything; I was excited. I am most excited that I get to play basketball in college, though.”

Senior Chase Snider signed for track and field at Emporia University in Kansas.

“Signing was a blast. I am most excited to train as a college athlete and try to become an all-American pole vaulter,” Snider said.

There have been multiple signing days throughout the year, during which student athletes have committed to their future colleges. Over 50 Broken Arrow High School students have signed to different universities for athletics. These students are excited to further their athletic endeavors at the colleges of their choice.
