FORT WORTH — The digital age continues to make traditional ways of communicating more and more irrelevant. But a good old fashioned signature can still be pretty important. For a few kids at Fort Worth ISD, it was never more important than on Wednesday.
Six student-athletes signed their names on the dotted line of their National Letters of Intent.
It’s something that Executive Director of Athletics Kevin Greene says many student-athletes never experience, “You’re part of between 2 to 4 percent depending on the sport that have an opportunity to do this.”
Alydia Victoria Poullard, who’s committed to the Abilene Christian University softball team, says her father was a major reason for her success, “My dad would not let me quit. For that, I am forever grateful.”
“There’s a lot of people from Paschal High School to South Hills High School to Riley that watched her grow up and seen how hard she’s worked,” Alydia’s father, Eric, said. “It’s not just me, it’s not just mom. There’s a lot of people proud of her.”
TCU baseball commit Drew Medford says he can’t thank his parents enough, “Driving me around places, buying me new things, buying me in the tournament so I could play in front of all of these college scouts, I mean everything was huge.”
Congrats to all the students and their families. Here’s hoping this is just the beginning to a huge future.
