National Signing Day

Today is the day when all of the high school athletes around the nation hold mini-press conferences in their school libraries to announce where they are going to school.  They will unveil a cap or sweatshirt of their school of choice, some keep it a secret and some have known for months where they will be going.  All the parents are crying tears of joy and the high school coaches are proud yet sad that they have to lose another track athlete.  Anyway, the Jackrabbits will be signing their biggest, and best class in recent history.  It will be possibly even bigger and better than my class- the high school graduating class of 2008.  We had 7 cross country guys- Brad Anderson, Mike Krsnak, Eddie Stenger, Ronnie Kyllo, Lars Mattison, Greg Beesley, and myself.  Later, Dom Thielen as added to that mix as well.  We also added a great recruiting class on the track side as well.  Multiple conference champion Jared Vlastuin, Mike Bredeson, Javelin star, Arran Davis and our 400 stable of Luke Leischner, Jared Foote, Evan Bunkers, and Dustin Gibbons.  SDSU's signing class this year is going to be very good.  I won't give any more details until after it's all official but it is going to be another special era of SDSU Cross and Track!
