Thirty-three student athletes accepted college athletic scholarships today at DeSoto High School during the school’s annual National Signing Day event.

“As a superintendent, you are always proud to see students taking a step forward in their educational journey, and we are extremely proud to celebrate and acknowledge the hard work and efforts of these 33 scholar-athletes who will go on to represent DeSoto High School and DeSoto ISD at their respective colleges and universities,” said DeSoto ISD Superintendent Dr. D’Andre Weaver.

Surrounded by tables decked out in each student-athlete’s college of choice, DeSoto High School student-athletes’ commitments were announced to a gym full of peers, parents and community members cheering them on as they were escorted down a red carpet by friends and family members.

“This an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of our student-athletes and their families as they sign athletic scholarships to compete at some of the nation’s top colleges and universities—a testament to the caliber of athletic and academic experiences offered to DeSoto ISD scholars,” said DeSoto ISD Athletic Director Larry Davis.
