TEMECULA – Eleven senior student athletes from Linfield Christian School recently took part in a National Letter of Intent signing day ceremony, where they were recognized for committing to play sports and further their education at the next level.

National Signing Day for many sports, especially in Division I, has become a celebrated event and is held so a high school senior can sign a binding national letter of intent with an NCAA, NCCAA or NAIA college, committing in writing to attend that school in exchange for a commitment from the school to receive financial aid and scholarships.
