Jordan Yorks (2009)
2016 Hall of Fame Inductee
When coaches think about the attributes of an athlete they’d like in a player, they probably say things like:
Jordan Yorks was all of these things and an even a bigger contributor to the Landmark community. He was an outstanding young man who congratulated his opponents on good shots, was a supportive teammate, and paid close attention to etiquette.
Scott Jamieson, who coached Jordan in basketball and baseball said, “I had the opportunity to coach Jordan from middle school through his high school graduation. It was an absolute pleasure to be part of his life at Landmark. As great of an athlete as he was, he is an even better person who I am proud to have coached.”
Here are Jordan’s achievements by sport.
- Two-time captain, playing second on the ladder with an over .500 win percentage.
- An overall player who pitched and caught for an EIL-winning team.
- Experienced a 17-0 undefeated season as a member of the “Season of Dreams” team
- Two-time varsity basketball EIL all-star
- Most valuable player his senior year
- Scored 1,105 points over his 4-year varsity career, therefore making him the first member of the Viking 1,000 point club
