The first Wednesday of every February means something special to college football fans: National Signing Day. The first day that high school football players are allowed to sign National Letters of Intent to play for the college team of their choice. For the players and their families it's the culmination of a dream, realized through a lot of hard work and sacrifice. For the fans it's a chance to look into the future of the their favorite program, as well as something else to brag about in the constant war of words between fans of rival teams.
For those of you in the Atlanta area, there is an additional way to enjoy Signing Day at The Georgia Sports Monthly/Sports Radio 680 The Fan Signing Day Event at the ESPN Zone in Buckhead. This annual event is exceptional, perhaps even unique. Players and coaches from many schools throughout the Atlanta area will gather on the morning of February 4th at the ESPN Zone. There, in front of the fans of various colleges, these football stars of tomorrow will come individually to the podium and put their name on the dotted line. It's not only great for the players and the fans; the local media is also a beneficiary of this event. Instead of running from high school to high school on Signing Day, as in year's past, they can go to one location and see a large number of best players in the area sign their Letters of Intent.
The 2003 Signing Day event featured players such as Kregg Lumpkin and Reggie Ball, who starred at Georgia and Georgia Tech this past season. This year's crop of talent promises to be just as exciting. Georgia Sports Monthly and 680 The Fan have teamed up to bring players to Signing Day 2004 that have been offered scholarships by major programs all across the nation. These players have the potential to have the same impact in college as last year's group.
See you there.
