On National Signing Day, DISD Recognizes its Outbound Athletes

On this (overhyped?) National Letter of Intent Signing Day, high schoolers all over the country chose which school they'd be suiting up for next. For some, it was as simple as faxing in a signed letter (a mighty challenge in its own right), but for the Dallas Independent School District's top recruits, much pageantry awaited.

For the last 10 years, Dallas high schools have combined for a district-wide "Meet the Signees" event, and the tradition continued today down at the Ellis Davis Field House. Not all of the district's biggest names attended, but No. 1 recruit Kevin Brent, the South Oak Cliff High defensive back, was there decked out in Oklahoma Sooner crimson and cream, and Skyline DB Steve Williams walked across the floor in Cal Bears blue and gold.
