Virtual ceremony(SPS) -- Sapulpa Chieftains Athletics hosted a virtual signing ceremony on Thursday for seven Sapulpa High School seniors who weren't able to have a ceremony in the Chieftain Center due to the school closure.

Throughout the school year, ceremonies are held for student-athletes who sign a National Letter of Intent to compete at the college level. However, these seven signed after school closed for Spring Break and ultimately, the coronavirus pandemic.

Athletic Director Michael Rose didn't want these seniors to move on without being recognized so he organized a virtual ceremony in which each student-athlete and his/her coach joined via Google Meets. Those student-athletes are:

Hunter Hoggatt - Basketball - Avila University
Jayde Duncan - Basketball - Northeastern Oklahoma A&M
Kaivon Mortazavi - Football - Avila University
Caiden Henderson - Baseball - Oklahoma Wesleyan
Coleson Coffey - Baseball - Ecclesia College
Kayli Grant - Soccer - University of Arkansas Rich Mountain
Nick Ryan - Soccer - Oklahoma Christian University

You can watch the ceremony and hear from the student-athletes on YouTube or in the video player below.
