Commited Athletes

Bishop Amat athletes have worked hard for the past four years to have their athletic careers noticed, and now they have committed to further their athletic careers in college.

It’s an excellent time for some of the Bishop Amat athletes. Bishop Amat athletes have committed to colleges to continue their academic and athletic careers at the next level.

Regardless of what division they will play at the next level, these athletes have put their blood and sweat into making this dream come true.

Some of these athletes have been waiting for this moment since they started playing this sport.

It is not easy to become a committed athlete.

This is not an easy process, and according to statistics, it is proven that only about 7 percent of athletes go on to play a varsity sport in college. This is a 1 in 13 ratio.

This is a dream that only a few get to accomplish in their lifetime.

Bishop Amat has prepared its student-athletes for both academic and athletic abilities so that they will be well prepared for their next level of play.

One of the many good things about being a committed athlete is that they are able to sign the National Letter of Intent.

Senior Elizabeth Werner has committed to Arlington Baptist University in Arlington, Texas, to go play softball. On November 10, 2021, she had her signing day at Bishop Amat Memorial High School.

“It took a lot of motivation and support, especially from my boyfriend, my friends, and my family,” said Werner.

Jazmine Ramiez and Alejandro Chavez signed their National Letter of Intent on February 2, 2022.

Senior Alejandro Chavez has committed to Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, to continue his football career as a long snapper. The acceptance rate at this university is less than 5%.

“One thing I told myself when I was down was to like never give up because if I let all that outside noise in, and all the other hater’s, it would never happen,” Chavez said. “My strong mentality helped me through the process.

Their families are a part of the reason they chose to go and continue their athletic careers. The family has had a massive reason for why many of these athletes are successful as they are.

Friends are also a reason why some of these athletes believe in themselves the way they do

Senior Jazmine Ramirez will be attending Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to play softball this fall.


“If it weren’t for my family, best friends, and favorite teachers, I would not be where I am,” Ramirez said. “I never thought the day would come where I signed my letter of intent at school. The best part was that I signed beside my best friend.”


Even in the most challenging times, these athletes have stuck through it and have finally accomplished their dreams.

These three athletes are not the only ones to commit and sign their letter of intent.

These athletes have worked their hardest to make their dreams come true.
