It was a busy National Signing Day for First Flight High School on Wednesday, as three athletes committed to play in the ACC, SEC and AAC.

“We’ve got some hardworking kids with some great coaches behind them,” said Nighthawks Athletic Director Chad Williams. “It doesn’t happen overnight.”

“To see three kids going to the Division One level in three different sports is a testament to the whole athletic program,” Williams said.
