The New Orleans Saints hosted 25 local high school students for National Signing Day at the team's facility Wednesday.

The signees and their families were brought into the team auditorium and were welcomed by Saints Defensive Coordinator Gregg Williams.

"A lot of hard work has gone into getting you here today," said Williams. "Sacrifice from you, your family, coaches, teammates, teachers and the school which will you be graduating from later in the spring. We are honored to all of you here today for this special moment."

After Wiliams spoke, each student was given the opportunity to announce their school of choice on stage in front of their family, media members and peers. Following the announcements, each student signed their national letter of intent to their respective schools.

The students and their families were treated to a snack in the team cafeteria following the event provided by Hooters Restaurant.
