Tate sisters announce school choice on National Signing Day

Posted: Updated:
BRENTWOOD, Tenn. -

Wednesday marks a day high school athletes in Middle Tennessee have worked years to get to.

On National Signing Day, student athletes from across the region will officially sign an agreement with the college of their choice.

Football is the sport that typically gets more attention on National Signing Day, but hard-working athletes in other sports are also on the path to their dreams.

Nashville's News 2 got a chance to speak with the Tate sisters, seniors at Brentwood Academy.

Twin sisters, Breanna and Deanna Tate announced to Nashville's News 2 Wednesday that they will be attending the University of Mississippi for Track and Field.

The twins said they don't feel any pressure or challenges running against one another. They added that once they went to visit the campus, their decision was made.

Their brother, Golden Tate, a wide receiver for the Seattle Seahawks, said he's excited for his sisters.

"Don't be content. Don't be satisfied, continue to work hard. This is only the beginning," advised Tate. "I'm excited for them. They worked hard for this moment and I'm excited to see them dominate at ‘Ole Miss."

Wesley Tate, a wide receiver for the Vanderbilt Commodores, agreed with his brother.

"I'm so proud of how hard they've worked these past few years. It's finally a moment [for them] to shine and sign their scholarships to go to ‘Ole Miss," he said.

Their mother, Yolanda, said she's very proud all four of her kids went to college on full scholarships.
