It's a very exciting day for many Colorado High School athletes and their families as they make known to the world {if they haven't already} where they will be furthering their education and playing some sports along the way.  I have compiled a list of area schools that I thought you might have an interest in and I wish the best to all the graduates for a bright future and leaving their mark in the world; academically or athletically.
