Men's Outdoor Track & Field - Mon, Jun. 28, 2010
County High School standout, Jordan Parris, picks Georgetown
College over Thomas More, Asbury College, Anderson
University, Morehead State University and Hanover College.
He will run track and cross country for coach Todd McDaniel
"Jordan is a great addition to an already solid freshman
class," McDaniel said. "I have been able to watch him grow
as a runner, and I know that he has the ability to compete
at the next level."
McDaniel will look to use Parris in the middle distances for
track, hoping to capitalize on his endurance from being a
cross country runner.
Parris is a four-time state qualifier for the Flyers track
team and three-time state qualifier in cross country.
"Jordan has been a workhorse for the FC track team over the
past four years," Flyer coach Kevin Hall said. "He has
improved as a runner over the past two years, and his best
running days are ahead of him at Georgetown College."
Parris listed the location, the small atmosphere and the
chance to run for McDaniel as his reasons for picking
Georgetown over his other options. He was a four-year
letterman in both sports as well as basketball. In his
senior year, he was first-team all-conference in cross
country, was named the most outstanding runner and received
the 110 percent award.
