Firecrackers Rico Signing Day 2021

The day our nine seniors have been waiting for has finally arrived. Wednesday, November 10, 2021 is National Signing Day, where each senior will sign a National Letter of Intent (NLI) to play softball for their respective universities. We are so proud of the accomplishments of our seniors, both on and off the field and wish them nothing but success in their future college homes. Class of 2022 this is your day. Congratulations!
