Athlete Autographs

Athlete Autographs

Allie Burgess, Reporter

This school year, a new tradition has begun at Belmont.  The Belmont Athletes are taking part in a poster signing night.  After one home game during a sports season, the athletes will sign posters for any spectators that wish to have an athlete poster autographed.  These posters are donated by the Belmont Sports Boosters.  I, personally, have been participating in high school sports for three years, and this was the first year that we had the opportunity to participate in signing night. I believe that it is a great experience for the youth to get a signature and talk to their favorite Brave Athletes. This event portrays great sportsmanship and positive role modeling.

Peyton Johnson, a Junior, stated “I think it’s a good thing for the kids. They get to interact with the athletes they look up to.”

Kylie Crapp, a Junior, stated “It makes kids happy because they look up to us, and we get to autograph posters for them. Also, it is cool to see the kids look up to us as role models.”
