Earlier this month, eighteen SFC seniors signed official letters of intent to play college sports at universities including Stanford, Cornell and Princeton, among others. The eighteen seniors represent seventeen percent of the graduating class; an impressive statistic given that only six percent of the nearly eight million students playing high school sports today will compete at NCAA schools*.

“We are proud to honor these student-athletes for their hard work, dedication and commitment to SFC Athletics,” said Chad Bickley, Athletic Director at SFC. “We thank their coaches, teachers and parents for all the time spent pouring into these student-athletes to help reach their goal to play collegiate sports. It’s a high-achieving goal, however we are most proud of the young men and women they have become.”

The 18 students who have signed letters of intent on Friday include:
