Final Signing Day


Luke Costello, Multimedia Coordinator

As the school year comes to an end, so do the signing days here at Prep. On Wednesday, May 3rd, 13 of our very own seniors signed to play sports in college.

These faith-filled, student-athletes seem more than prepared to take on the collegiate level of sports.

Senior Vincent Padalino signed to play soccer at Penn State Behrend. “It is a dream to be in the position I am right now,” Vincent said. “Growing up it was my goal to become a role model for the people who follow me. I hope I set a legacy for years to come at Prep. Moving forward, it is now my goal to do the same in college. Cathedral Prep has put me in a spot of success that I never thought I would be in. As a freshman, I was oblivious to the connections and legacy this school holds. Now that I am leaving, I can confidently say that it has impacted me more than I ever thought it would.”

Through interviews, the most common thing that was talked about was family and legacy. Blake Taylor, another of the many soon-to-be college athletes said, “I couldn’t have done any of this without the family that has been built with my brothers at Prep. My team pushes me every day to become a better version of myself on and off the field, without them, none of this would be possible.”

Cathedral Prep’s mission of building men and women of faith, integrity, and love shows in the school and on the field. Hundreds of students flood the Salata Technology & Innovation Center waiting and watching their brothers and sisters reach their goals in life. Many describe this time as one of the biggest bonding moments for our school. Success is the sum of small efforts day in and day out, and through this idea, men and women are determined to succeed in life, and on this day the Cathedral Prep family has won.
