Guyer Wildcats National Signing Day

Guyer Wildcats National Signing Day

by Steve Gamel

Another national signing day is in the books for Guyer High School, and once again a slew of prospects in multiple sports are moving on to the next level.

The Wildcats had 13 signees representing three sports take part in the annual recruitment ceremony on Feb. 1, which is the first day college football teams can officially sign 2018 freshmen. Many athletes from around Denton County, including those from Guyer, made their commitments well in advance – but this was a chance to officially sign on the dotted line.

Of Guyer’s 13 recruits, eight were from football and four played girls soccer. Amber Lyons led that pack as she signed with UNT. Lyons, a forward, is considered one of Guyer’s better goal scorers in recent years. The senior has been right in the middle of the Lady Wildcats’ resurgence this season and has the team thinking playoffs after a one-year absence.

Lyons is following in the footsteps of Guyer girls soccer coach Mandy Hall, who was a standout goal keeper at UNT. Lyons is a forward, but has shown incredible aggressiveness all year.

Joining Lyon on the signing podium were Naomi Regan (Oklahoma Christian, Texas-Permian Basin) and Taylor Wallace (Ouachita State).

In football, the Wildcats had eight players sign, which is proof that Guyer has more than enough talent to compete with the likes of anyone.
