Men's Outdoor Track & Field - Mon, Jun. 28, 2010
Franklin 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.
