On national signing day, high school student-athletes across Central Texas celebrated their selection of where they will play in college.

For those of you who get annoyed that the students make a big deal out of the process, remember they're just having fun and it is a big deal to them. They've also trained exceptionally hard to achieve the goal of playing college ball.
