The Next Big Step: Signing Day

Adam Abougendia, Sports Editor

  As Charter Sports regained normalcy in the past year, one common thing around high schools in America is the beloved day, “Senior Signing Day”. A day in which high school seniors sign their letters of intent to go play collegiate sports for the next 2-4 years of their lives. This past week at Pembroke Pines Charter High, four extremely talented student-athletes officially signed to the division I schools of their choice and have started their quest for greatness. 

Kolby King: St. Johns University

A transfer from Blanche Ely High School in Pompano Beach Florida, King immediately made an impact on the scene at Charter with a visit to the state championship in 2020. King and the Jaguars had a historic season averaging 16 points a game. St Johns of New York took notice and offered Kolby and he signed.

Eliana Salama: Southern Methodist University

Salama is a four year senior captain of the girl’s soccer team. A crafty, attacking minded player allowed her to electrify crowds at the highest level of competition. SMU in Dallas, Texas picked up on her talents and recruited her to their university in which she eventually committed and signed for. 

Sabrina Araujo Elorza: Northeastern

Sabrina is also a four year senior on the girl’s soccer team. A solid and technical midfielder is a pivotal part of the Jags midfield and carries herself very well on and off the field. She controls the tempo of the pitch and Northeastern in Boston is where she will be taking her talents.

Leyla Molina: Alabama A&M University

Last but not least, the last of the Lady Jags. Molina is also a big part of Charter’s attack. A great attacker with a pure sense for the goals, she committed to play college soccer at Alabama A&M university.
