National Signing Day is the culmination of a long recruiting journey for many student-athletes. It marks the day that a high school senior can sign with a college to play their sport at the next level.
Wednesday at Lausanne, in the athletic building's lobby, four Lynx student-athletes gathered with their families as they signed their National Letters of Intent.
“This past season presented many challenges not directly associated with the game itself," athletic director and head football coach Kevin Locastro said. "Even though our season was cut short, it was still a success. The young men who signed their National Letters of Intent today played a key role in helping our team stay focused during uncertain times. They have been an extension of the coaching staff and adapted well to the changing environment last fall. I am very proud of all of these student-athletes."
The ceremony reflects years of sacrifices and hard work put in by the student-athletes and their families.
"They represented their families, themselves, our school and football program in a very positive manner," Locastro said. "Their combined record over the last four seasons is 40-8. I am completely confident that they will all be successful in continuing their careers at the perspective schools they have chosen. Lausanne has provided them a place to grow and learn through its academic program and school culture. These young men are prepared, and we wish them the best of luck."
The renowned International Baccalaureate Programme and wide range of extra-curricular activities give Lausanne students a competitive edge in the college admission process as well as the skills and attributes necessary to explore and find success in a global environment.
“It takes an incredible amount of discipline, dedication and organization to be a student-athlete," Upper School Dean of Student Affairs and Inclusion and Varsity Football Defensive Coordinator/LBs Coach Chris Jordan said. "The academic rigor and standard of excellence here at Lausanne prepare our students for success at the next level. I’m so proud of all of our student-athletes that are getting the opportunity to play collegiately. They have worked so hard and achieved so much. They are truly a testament to our culture at Lausanne.”
