NATIONAL SIGNING DAY

NATIONAL SIGNING DAY

2017 ARGYLE HIGH SCHOOL & LIBERTY CHRISTIAN SCHOOL

by Steve Gamel

Another national signing day is in the books for both Argyle and Liberty Christian High School, and once again a slew of prospects in multiple sports are moving on to the next level.
Both schools combined for a whopping 14 signees representing six sports in the annual recruitment ceremony on Feb. 1, which is the first day college football teams can officially sign 2017 freshmen. Many athletes from around Denton County, including those from Argyle and Guyer, made their commitments well in advance – but this was a chance to officially sign on the dotted line.

Of the 14 recruits, eight were from Argyle High School. Perhaps the biggest of that bunch was Eagles’ quarterback Dane Ledford, who signed with Tulane. Ledford, who led his team to the third round of the playoffs as a senior, threw for nearly 1,700 yards and 14 touchdowns. He also rushed for six touchdowns. He was the only Football Bowl Subdivision recruit for either school.

Abbi Neece, who has been a scoring machine for the Lady Eagle soccer team, signed with Arkansas that same afternoon while Parker Love signed to play golf at
Mary Hardin-Baylor.

Liberty Christian’s 2017 signing class was led by senior soccer star Zeinab Kante, who signed with Brown University. Brooks Talkington, a playmaking linebacker for the Warrior football team, signed with the University of Northern Colorado.
