On Tuesday, Nov. 14, a select amount of baseball and softball players attending Gaither High School were honored in the auditorium for signing day.

National Signing Day is a very significant day for high school athletes everywhere. It is a day where student athletes are given the opportunity to publicly sign a contract committing themselves to a college sport.

The student’s parents and coaches were invited to celebrate this memorable time with them as they signed their names, followed with snacks and refreshments in the school’s media center.

The students invited to Gaither’s National Signing Day were all outstanding students who have received good grades and have shown leadership to their peers. The students were: Danny Gutcher, Anthony Alvarez, Tyler Tipton and Caitlin Minor. The athletes were very thrilled to have been able to experience this day with not only their coaches and parents but also fellow teammates and friends.

Anthony Alvarez, varsity baseball pitcher, was thrilled to be able to commit to Hillsborough Community College. Alvarez has set very high goals for himself to achieve in his future college baseball years.

“My freshmen year I thought I would be going D1 but my main goal is to get drafted my second year of junior college baseball. I plan on running and working out five days a week and doing yoga to stretch and work out my muscles more for a faster and better pitch,” said Alvarez.

Nelson North, head coach of Gaither’s varsity baseball, is extremely proud of the students who signed on Tuesday. Coach North has seen these athletes grow into who they are today and also helped them use their skills to their full advantage. North enjoys being able to help his team achieve their goals and see them succeed in what they love.

“It is a personal goal of mine that if I feel they have the talent to play at the next level that we get them there. They work very hard on the field and in the classroom to take that next step in their lives. I am very proud of all of them,” said North.

North added, “A message to those who signed would be to work hard and to earn and deserve the success they desire. To set their standards high and strive for excellence in every facet of their lives.”
