Wednesday is National Signing Day, the second official signing period for football athletes who will be receiving scholarships or some form of financial aid in return for attending and playing at their colleges of choice. Athletes from other sports are also continuing their signing period of Nov. 14-August. 1.
While some of the periods have changed, NSD has become a de facto national holiday and a rite of passage for successful student-athletes across the country. Last year, the NCAA added an early national signing period for Division I football in December, which has lessened the impact somewhat of February’s signing day.
Regardless, it’s become vogue to commemorate the occasion by hosting a NSD ceremony at their school where they can take photos with their parents, coaches and teachers and maybe even talk about their moment with the sporting press.
So it’s time to rekindle our tradition for Connecticut letter-signers here at GameTimeCT: Send us your National Signing Day Photos.
Send your photos/videos/interviews to us at this address firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com or message and/or tag us on Twitter @GameTimeCT and Instagram at @GameTimeCT and we’ll publish all of them in a nice online scrapbook.
And here’s what football’s signing day looked like back in December.
We’ll also be on the lookout for Twitter photos, including official signing cards from college football programs across the country as they confirm their signees.
If you’re not on it, send us a note and we’ll get you on it.
