Southpaw Jordan Woods Earns Scholarship to ETSU
Congratulations to the Woods family on their son Jordan's recent commitment to the East Tennessee State University‎ Buccaneers ( NCAA D1). 

Jordan has been a major cog in the Terriers Baseball pitching rotation for the past three years.

The lefty consistently repeats‎ his easy but intense delivery. His CB and CH project as plus and both generate a lot of defensive swings. 

His mid 80s heater routinely plays up because he commands it to both sides of the plate. 

Overall Jordan demonstrates exemplary command of his entire arsenal of pitches. 

 

ETSU was founded in 1911 and is located in Johnson City, TN.‎ It is the 4th largest university in the state. 

Just 30 minutes from campus students can hike the Appalachian Trail, view natural wilderness and explore the world- famous Rhododendron Gardens atop Roan Mountain (elevation 6,285 ft).

 

Jordan pitched in the CPBL All-Star game in September and competed at the prestigious Oklahoma Sunbelt Tournament in 2019. Before transitioning all his athletic talent toward baseball Jordan played goal in the GTHL, bagging two championships along the way. 

 

The Buccaneers are members of the NCAA D1 Southern Conference. Before the COVID-19 shutdown this past spring they had an impressive 12-3 record (.800). ‎ The Bucs were ranked 55th in the nation. Their schedule is grueling with games against such competition as Clemson, Virginia Tech, the University of Tennessee and The Citadel. ‎

 

Jordan will be studying Kinesiology at ETSU. Continued success Jordan. The entire Terriers organization is very proud of your accomplishments.
