Fourteen St. Joseph athletes sign letters of intent

Fourteen St. Joseph High senior student-athletes signed National Letters of Intent at the school on Wednesday, Dec. 19.

"St Joseph High School — coaches, teachers, staff — we are so proud of each and every one of our athletes,” said Kevin Butler, Assistant Principal for Athletics. “Each of these students has an incredible future ahead of them, and we can’t wait to watch them every step of the way.”

The National Letter of Intent (NLI) is a document used to indicate a student-athlete’s commitment to participating in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) colleges and universities in the United States.

It is a binding agreement between a prospective student-athlete and an NLI member institution.

As part of their NLI, prospective student-athletes agree to attend the institution full-time for one academic year and the institution agrees to provide athletes financial aid for one academic year.
