Boles basketball player named as all-star

Hunter Jordan selected to North-South game

GREENVILLE —   Recent Boles graduate Hunter Jordan is hoping his performance in an upcoming all-star basketball game will help continue his career in college.

  “I’m hoping to get a couple of calls after the game,” said Jordan. “Right now I’m still undecided.”

Jordan, a 6-1 guard, has been selected to play for the North team in the North-South Texas High School Coaches Association’s all-star basketball game on July 29 at Daniel Meyer Coliseum in Fort Worth. The game will be televised live on Fox Sports Southwest.

  Jordan is one of only two players selected from Class A for the game. The other player is 6-3 forward Nathaniel Jack of Mart who will play for the South.

  “I feel good and honored to play in that game with those guys,” said Jordan.

Jordan earned all-state honors by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches after averaging 20.8 points, 7.8 rebounds and nearly five assists for the 22-8 Hornets, who went three rounds in the playoffs. Jordan averaged 24 points in district play and 33.0 in the playoffs. He topped 2,000 points for his career.

  Jordan also scored 11 points for the South in a 114-85 loss to the North in the first Chicken Express all-star game in Greenville on April 20. Jordan, who also had a bunch of assists in that game, was named the most valuable player for the South.

  Jordan will join several NCAA Division I signees on the North team including 6-5 guard Brandon Parrish of Arlington Seguin (TCU), 6-3 guard Marcus Foster of Wichita Falls Hirschi (Kansas State), 6-8 forward Leyton Hammonds of Richland (Oklahoma State), 6-6 forward Jeffery Carroll of Rowlett (Oklahoma State) and 6-7 forward Blake Danielak of Liberty Hill (Drake).

  “I’m ready to play in it,” said Jordan. “I’m excited. It’s going to be pretty competitive. It’s going to be fun.”
