Athlete Of The Week-Jordan Whittington

Posted: Updated:

Our Athlete Of The Week is Jordan Whittington. After earning Max Preps sophomore All-America honors last year, Jordan Whittington worked out hard in the off-season. The hard work paid off, as the Cuero first team All-State pick makes the Max Preps junior All-America team for 2017. This time Whittington gets first team honors as an all-purpose player. He certainly was that for the Mean Green. The five-star wide receiver had nearly 2,000 yards of total offense to go with 21 touchdowns. Whittington added nearly 50 tackles and three interceptions. Said Whittington, "It's better because I got first team all-purpose and last year I was second team. I made more of an impact this year stat-wise individually. That's exciting. " Said head coach Travis Reeve, "Jordan has worked really hard from year-to-year. Each year he gets better at different things, like his skill level, his leadership, his work ethic."
Whittington helped lead the Mean Green to a 10-1 record and a trip to the regional finals. "It was good. We didn't get as far as we wanted to but we changed the program totally. The chemistry was the main thing that sticks out to me." Last summer, Whittington put out his list of the top seven college football teams he would like to sign with after his senior season. Six of those colleges have changed coaches since then. How has that affected his wish list? "Those same schools are on there but I added Oklahoma and Ohio State because every coach that got fired from my previous favorite schools, they got a better coach, in my opinion. I kept them so I can actually meet the new coach and see what they're like. I still like the schools." Having a strong football program is not the only thing Whittington is looking for out of a prospective college. "I look to see if they have my major, my minor, the offensive style they have, just the whole style of play and the environment because I have to live there 3-4 years." Said coach Reeve, "The thing that I've told him is remember there's life after football. You may have a great career into the NFL and it will still come to an end sooner rather than later. You want to use the opportunities that you've been given to set yourself up for the rest of your life." Coach Reeve added that just about every Power five college conference school has offered a football scholarship to Jordan Whittington
