GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Signing day is always a busy day around town with so many young, talented athletes ready to continue their career at the collegiate level.

Grand Junction had nine athletes ink their future - the most the school has ever had in one day.

Two ladies represented the track team, seven guys represented the Tigers' football team, and for every single one it's a day they've been anticipating for quite some time.

At Fruita Monument High School five student athletes also had the opportunity to put their athletic future in writing. Though the sport ranged from volleyball to soccer to softball, these five seniors did have something in common - a love for their sport and a promising athletic future in college.
