Scholar Athlete of the Week: Shaw High School’s Jordine Moody
JORDINE MOODY IS LOOKING TO HAVE A STANDOUT SENIOR SEASON ON THE BASKETBALL COURT AND IN THE CLASSROOM
Jordine Moody is a Senior on the Shaw Lady Raiders basketball team, but when she graduates from high school, she will already have a year of college under her belt since she’s dual enrolled at Columbus Tech.
“It takes a lot of hard work because professors in college don’t care if you have a basketball game or practice, so you have to manage everything,” said Moody.
On the court Jordine leads the Lady Raiders at point guard, she also loves to play defense.
“Just the intensity of it, it makes your opponent scared,” says Moody.
Jordine is hoping for a stand out senior season, so she can get some offers from school’s where she’d like to play basketball.
“It motivates me a lot because it’s like now or never, I got to do it now,” said Moody.
While being dual enrolled in high school and college courses, Jordine knows her academic success will be a selling point to college coaches.
“As an athlete when you’re looking for scholarships, you wouldn’t necessarily have to get an athletic scholarship, they can give you an academic scholarship as well, so you have your options at colleges,” says Moody.
Jordine is still undecided on where she’d like to go to college and what she would like to study, but she knows her hard work has opened whatever avenue she wants to pursue.
“It feels good that I can chose where I want to go on my own time. Hard work pays off,” said Moody.
Congratulations Jordine Moody, WLTZ’s Scholar Athlete of the Week.
