JORDAN PETERSON

Coach Rick O'Dette on Jordan Peterson

“Even though Jordan is only a sophomore he acts as if he is a senior.  His leadership on and off the field is impeccable.  When he is on the mound, Jordan is the best competitor I have coached.  Off the field he is often seen picking-up teammates, doing multiple charity or community service projects or anything else that someone may need.  His heart and desire is untouchable.”

One of the best examples we can give of Jordan is two weeks ago at the GLVC Baseball Tournament. He pitched his second 10-inning complete game in five days, earning a victory in both. The second day was plagued by rain and our start time was pushed back into the evening at the University of Southern Indiana. As rain became heavier during the middles of the game the grounds scrambled to pull the tarp. With limited staff Jordan and some of his teammates ran down the line to help pull the trap. Jordan helped remove the tarp from the field, then grabbed a rake and diamond dry and helped get the infield ready for play. The GLVC Commissioner, who presented Jordan with the GLVC Pitcher of the Year Award the day before, thanked Jordan for his help throughout the day. 

Prior to the game getting started and with the field work done, Jordan played a simulated game with our coach's eight year old son. He usually the first to be available to volunteer for the numerous service projects the baseball team participates in. Two Christmas ago, Peterson even became one of the reindeer for Santa's slay during the Gallagher Charitable Society, which provides gifts, food, and even games for underprivileged families during the holiday season.
