Ten McIntosh students sign with colleges

When asked what signing day meant to him, Salomon Lorenzano fought back the tears as he recalled the sacrifices his mother made.
Due in large part to some of those sacrifices Lorenzano decided to sign with Georgia State University to play soccer in order to be close to his mother.
“In case anything happens I will be there for her and it’s just great to get support from my family,” said Lorenzano. “It’s an emotional day and I’m just glad I could make it to this point.”
Lorenzano is just one of ten McIntosh athletes to sign their national letters of intent. Among some of the signees were Missy Beall, swimming at University of San Diego, Kaitlyn Deitrick soccer at Georgia State, Hannah Hartman, soccer at Jacksonville, Alex Horne, soccer at South Georgia College, Brad Hort, track at UGA, Kelsey Lord soccer at West Ga., Salomon Lorenzano, soccer at Georgia State, Gabby Seiler, soccer at UGA, Corrine Wooten, soccer at Mercer and Grant Worthington, golf at Concordia.
"The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will," said assistant principal and athletic director Jason Byars. “This is a great day for McIntosh and a great day for our community, I’m so proud of our players.”
McIntosh also had four players sign their letters of intent early and are planning on having football players sign their letters later on in the week.
