National signing day 2012With smartphones, email, scanners and Facebook, fax machines have been disappearing as a communication device, similar to pay telephones.

But on national signing day 2012 for football, faxes are the most common way for athletes to send in their signed letters to colleges confirming they have accepted a scholarship offer.
