For players, National Signing Day is the fruition of years of hard work on the field and in the classroom.
It's an exciting day they'll never forget, as they sign on the dotted line for the program they'll join for the next four years.
However, for the coaches who spent hours recruiting them, it can be a little different.
"Nervous is maybe a better word than exciting. Just hoping everything works out," laughs Albany State head coach Mike White. "That's basically what you're doing, trying to keep your fingers crossed and hoping everything works out."
The day before signing day, White says the work is mostly done. Now he and the Rams coaching staff have to see what happens.
"You're constantly on the phone, getting calls from guys who have already signed," White says. "It's just a waiting game. Your scholarships have went out. You just hope you land more than you lose."
But when that National Letter of Intent comes through the fax machine, White says it's a rush.
"It's a good feeling because you got the guy you wanted," White says. "Signing Day is just a big deal because of that reason. This is the guy you've offered. This is the guy you've got."
