St. Charles County athletes sign national letters of intent

High School athletes around St. Charles County signed national letters of intent on Wednesday [Feb. 1] to play college sports and pursue a college education.

Francis Howell and Francis Howell Central had the largest contingent of athletes to move forward with the academic and athletic careers. A total 28 athletes from the two schools signed letters of intent on Wednesday.

“These students all have a tremendous work ethic and we are proud to honor and celebrate them on this significant milestone,” Francis Howell Central athletic director Scott Harris said.

It was an extra special day for Fort Zumwalt North senior football player Cade Brister.

For Brister, the day meant furthering his education and a few more years to play the game he’s loved since grade school. Brister signed to play with Lindenwood University.

“It’s just a dream come true, honestly,” Brister said. “I’ve dreamed of this day ever since I was 5, 6 years old. There is nothing you can say that tops [for me] the situation to get an opportunity to play college football.”
