Fall Student-Athlete Signing Ceremony

On Nov. 11, 2020, Bishop O'Connell held its annual Falls Sports Signing Day, but instead of the usual gathering in the school gym, the event was held virtually over Zoom. More than 150 coaches, teammates, family members, friends, and other supporters joined together to celebrate the incredible accomplishments of nine student-athletes from the class of 2021.

Athletic Director Joe Wootten began the virtual ceremony with excitement and pride for our student-athletes: "We celebrate the wonderful people, the wonderful students, the wonderful athletes that we have. All of them have represented O'Connell with outstanding excellence on the field, in the pool, on the diamond, on the court."

"This is such a happy moment," added Head of School Bill Crittenberger. "Thank you parents, loved ones, siblings. We all know the deep devotion and hard work that goes into it, and it certainly doesn't happen by itself."

O'Connell coaches introduced each student-athlete just prior to their signing, providing opening remarks and compliments about each student's accomplishments. In turn, the students had the opportunity to make their own remarks, thanking their parents, family, coaches, and friends for all of their support and sacrifices, and for helping them grow mentally and physically in both sports and life.

Congratulations to the following student-athletes who signed their National Letter of Intent to continue their athletic and academic careers at the next level and represent O'Connell at the next level:
