Eleven New Canaan High School seniors signed early Letters of Intent on Wednesday to play sports in college starting next year. The photos below are from a signing ceremony overseen by NCHS Athletic Director Jay Egan, held in the Wagner Room. Egan called it “Probably the happiest day” of the year, marking the “culmination lot of hard work, lot of time, lot of effort and a lot of dreams young people are realized by what they have earned.”
Each student received an engraved ‘New Canaan High School’ pen that included the date of Signing Day. We also asked the student-athletes why their future schools are a good fit, and put their responses next to the photos. ***
“It was the best balance between social and academics for me, out of all the schools I was looking at and I really liked the people there.”
“Honestly I thought it was a good location for me, just because everyone here stays on the East Coast and they want to go to the same schools and when Butler started looking at me, it was all the way in the Midwest and I was kind of scared about that, but then I felt like the fit was just right.
