April 15 marks the start of the third and final signing period for high school athletes to sign their national letters of intent to play sports at the collegiate level. 

Typically this day is littered with schoolwide signing celebrations as athletes are honored by their family and peers for the hard work and dedication required to compete at the collegiate level. 

Unfortunately things are different for the Class of 2020 this time around, so The Gazette is honoring not only those who intend to sign their National Letters of Intent on Wednesday, but will acknowledge all Pikes Peak region athletes who have signed to continue their athletic careers in college. 

Have you signed a National Letter of Intent and are not included on this list? Complete this form to be added.

Information provided by athletic directors, coaches and parents. Please send any revisions and photos from signing ceremonies to preps@gazette.com.
