Send PrepXtra your signing day photos

National signing day for football, soccer and men’s water polo begins Wednesday.

Okay. So there aren’t many water polo standouts in the PrepXtra coverage area, if any. But football and soccer stars are aplenty. So as you’re snapping photos to celebrate the occasion, think of the News Sentinel.

We want your photos.

Simply send via Twitter or by email a copy of your signing day photo, and we will use it in an area-only photo gallery of signees that will be published on

Here’s what we need: The photo accompanied by a caption listing all individuals in the picture and their relationship to the player signing.

For example: Chris Thomas of the Knoxville News Sentinel poses for a picture with sports editor Phil Kaplan, left, assistant sports editor Steve Trosky, middle, and executive editor Jack McElroy, right, during a ceremony at KNS on Wednesday in Knoxville, Tenn. Thomas signed a national letter of intent with John Doe University.

Let’s not kid ourselves. John Doe University probably recruited me as an unpreferred walk-on. Better yet, a water boy (did I mention I have blazing 5.7 speed in the 40-yard dash?).

Either way, you get the point.

You can submit photos by emailing, or by tagging @PrepXtra on either Twitter or the PrepXtra Facebook page. Just remember to send us the cutline information with as much detail as possible.
