Video Special: Signing Day emotions run the gamut for area stars

By Morgan Lee Sports Editor
National Signing Day produced a broad range of emotions from thousands of high school athletes across the nation -- including plenty from right here in northeast Georgia.

On Wednesday, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes honored almost 50 of those athletes in a ceremony at Gainesville's Longstreet Cafe.

Plenty of those athletes took time to sit down with Access North Georgia.com sports editor Morgan Lee to discuss their recruiting process, their collegiate choices and the emotions running through their heads on National Signing Day.

Some had already signed Letters of Intent in their respective sports, some were fresh off the exhilarating experience of seeing their signatures set down while yet others were still mulling weighty decisions.

All had plenty of interest to say, however, and to watch our video special -- which includes comments from each athlete that talked to us on Wednesday -- simply scroll down and click "play."
