On Wednesday, December 7, eight student-athletes from Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School signed their National Letters of Intent. This ceremony honored the largest group of Division 1 signees in school history.
Signees included baseball players Dylan Alonzo of Tiger, GA; Luke Earnhardt of Rabun Gap, GA; Armani Guzman of New York, NY; Lewis Rodriguez of Garnerville, NY; and Brady Roulier of Woodstock, GA; basketball player Domas Kauzonas of Vilnius, Lithuania; football player Nickolas Roy of Quebec, Canada; and track and field athlete Calea Jackson of Miami Lakes, FL.
Alonzo and Earnhardt signed with Middle Tennessee State University. Guzman will be heading to West Virginia University. Rodriguez will go up north to Marist College. Roulier will attend Missouri University of Science and Technology. All five of these players have been important members of the baseball team, which finished in the state semifinals last season and looks to make a championship run this spring.
Roy, who will officially sign on December 21,will be playing football at the University of Buffalo. He has been a member of the Eagles football team, which was the NCISAA state runner-up last year.
Kauzonas will further his academic and basketball career at the University of North Carolina Greensboro. The 6’10” power forward has been an asset to the boys varsity basketball team with his excellent work ethic and large physical presence.
Jackson will be heading to the University of Miami. She has had a very impressive athletic career for the Eagles track and field team, winning back-to-back NCISAA state championships in the discus and shot put. She looks to win her third state championship this spring.
“This group of student-athletes highlight the continued growth and success of our athletic program,” said Head of School Jeff Miles. “I am so proud of each student and look forward to seeing their future achievements.”
Wednesday’s signing day was the first for this academic year at Rabun Gap. The school will host another signing day this spring, with more signees in football, basketball, baseball, lacrosse and soccer.
