GAINESVILLE -- I've been saving this picture for a few years. Back when I was covering preps in Broward County, one of my favorite days of the year was driving around the county on National Signing Day and covering (celebrating) the big day with all of Broward's college-bound football players.
Every year, my trek around Broward would end at Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas. The Raiders wait until the end of the school day to have their signing ceremony, which allows all the reporters to attend.
Check out this classic photo from the Raiders' 2006 signing-day ceremony: Pictured are UM receiver Leonard Hankerson, UF safety Major Wright and Mississippi State quarterback Wesley Carroll -- all 2007 graduates of St. Thomas. (Yes, the dork in the middle of the photo is me.)
