National Signing Day: Guyer 2016

National Signing Day: Guyer 2016

by Steve Gamel

The biggest day of the year for college-bound athletes came and went earlier this month, and the Wildcats once again had their share of top-tier talent signing on the proverbial dotted line.

Guyer had 10 athletes representing four sports take part in National Signing Day on February 3, which is the first day that a high school senior can sign a binding national letter of intent for college football. While the day is marked in the media as a football-heavy signing day, athletes in other sports also take part.

Those other sports are where Guyer made the most headlines. Of the school’s 10 recruits, two signed with Division I programs. Those signees were Ashleigh Lyons, who will play soccer at the University of North Texas and golf standout Connor Ross, who will move on to play at Incarnate Word.

To the right is the complete list of Guyer signings, as reported by area coaches and surrounding media outlets. The Wildcats had six football players, highlighted by do-everything linebacker Mike Carrillo, move on to play at the next level. Carrillo, along with teammate Tevan McAdams signed with Trinity Valley, which is one of the top junior college football programs in the state.

All but one of the football signees were on the defensive side of the ball, which was arguably one of the Wildcats’ strong suits while advancing to the region final of the playoffs in 2015.

The list below also includes another soccer signing and one in volleyball:
