National Signing Day 2017 Guyer

National Signing Day 2017 Guyer

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 14 signees representing two sports take part in its annual recruitment ceremony on Feb. 1, which is the first day college football teams can officially sign 2017 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.

“It’s my favorite time of the year,” Guyer football coach John Walsh said. “Any time you can get kids from Guyer moving on to play at the next level, it’s a good thing.”

Of Guyer’s 14 recruits, 10 were from the football team. Included in that big recruiting class were two Football Bowl Subdivision signees in Brian Polendey and Bryce Jackson. Polendey, a tight end, signed early and is already enrolled at Miami. Jackson, a defensive back, signed with Northwestern. He’s one of two Denton-area players heading to Northwestern, as Earnest Brown IV from Denton Ryan also signed with the Division I powerhouse.

The football class was also highlighted by Thabo Mwaniki, who signed with Oklahoma State, and brothers Dio and Gio Williams, who are heading to Arkansas Tech.

Guyer had one female soccer player and three male soccer stars sign. Morgan Wessling signed with Oklahoma State, continuing a trend of solid Guyer soccer players who move on to the next level each year.
