WSA SENIOR CLASS of 2012 HEADED TO PLAY COLLEGE SOCCER!
Players from WSA 94 boys, WSA 94 girls, WSA 95 boys, and WSA 95 girls began taking advantage of their "offers" to play college soccer by officializing their "verbal commitments" today, February 1st, "National Signing Day", the first day players (under NCAA rules) could formalize their commitments.
The end of their club journey commences the "next step" and the "next level". "Without each of you I wouldn’t have made it," claimed senior Hana McGinis (WSA 94 girls) who will be accepting an offer to play at Maryville University in St. Louis. "And you guys will need to plan your schedule to come down and visit," she continued, addressing her parents and coaches.
WSA is expected to set another record in college signings with the 2012 class. The 94 boys and 94 girls will headline most of the commitments, but the 95 boys and 95 girls teams also have a handful of 2012 graduates who will accept offers to play soccer at the next level.
"It’s a day to celebrate our kids. The full effort of the club program, but more importantly each kids personal drive, ambition, and investment, and the support of their families is what is on display," reports Director of Coaching, Roger Bush.
College signing period will continue through August 1st, and WSA expects nearly or more than 30 college commitments by the time all players have formally decided. Below is a look of the players making their commitment on the day of "National Signing". Stay posted for updates as players commitments are expected to roll in for the next several weeks!
Congratulations to all WSA players for their hard work, perserverance, and investment. Thanks for your example of pursuing dreams. And best wishes in your journey onward, at the "next level", and in pursuit of all of the dreams in front of you!
