National Signing Day at Francis Howell Central

Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2017 is National Signing Day, the first day that a high school senior can sign a binding National Letter of Intent (NLI) to play NCAA football. In the Francis Howell School District (FHSD), it is a day to honor the student-athletes in all sports as they prepare for the next step in their academic and athletic careers. Signing a NLI is all about commitment – the future commitment to play a sport at the collegiate level, as well as the past commitment that has provided this opportunity for high school students.

At Francis Howell Central (FHC), eight student-athletes signed letters of intent, as well as five more last fall. These athletes also studied as hard as they played, earning a combined GPA of 3.51.

Micah Skebo will be taking his outstanding football talents to Washburn University, and his father, Bob Skebo, was there to see him sign on the dotted line. "We couldn't be more proud of Micah," he said. "It just shows that hard work and responsibility will pay off. It's true in his games and in his academics." At Francis Howell Central, eight students have signed to play sports at the next level at schools like McKendree University, Southern Illinois University – Edwardsville, and Missouri S&T.

Congratulations to all of the FHSD students who will be competing next year at the college level. Click here to see a picture gallery of all three FHSD high schools’ ceremonies.
