8th-Graders Sign Football “Letters of Intent”

More than 50 eighth-graders signed “letters of intent” to play football at Republic High School in a ceremony last week. The second annual signing ceremony is intended to increase excitement in the football program among younger players, according to high school head coach Dustin Baldwin.

“Our numbers for freshman football were strong last season so we feel like this has made a positive impact and will continue to do so,” said Baldwin. “It’s a good opportunity for us to get… players and parents in here and welcome them to our program, and let them know what our expectations are and what we are all about.”

Fifty-two players in all signed letters of intent. That’s up slightly from last year’s initial signing ceremony.
