EVJ Leadership Team
College Recruiting Coordinator

A message from Coach Jordan:
This is my third year with EVJ. I am taking the 2023-2024 year off from coaching a club team but will be in the gym as a specialty training coach. I will focus my efforts on guiding EVJ players in the college recruiting process. I will travel to national tournaments and spend time with college coaches and recruiters in an effort to help our players find a great fit.

My coach message:
My mission as a coach is to always provide a positive, productive way
of training. I am entering my third year of coaching at EVJ and look forward to translating my love for playing the game into the love for coaching. My coaching provides a unique experience that instills both training in athletics but in life too. As a coach, I believe that the lessons you learn in sports can not only prepare you to be the best athlete but person as well. In that, I want to challenge young athletes to be the best version of themselves. Lastly, I am a firm believer in the quote ...”the hard is what makes it great, if it were easy, everyone would be doing it...”. So let’s embrace the hard and make this experience great together!
