Freshman phenom Jordyn Oliver continues to make headlines with a slew of awards coming her way.
Already named the District 10-5A Offensive Player of the Year, Oliver earned a place on Texas Association of Basketball Coaches All-Region and All-State list, as well.
She was the only freshman on both teams and was awarded Newcomer of the Year by the Dallas Morning News.
Oliver took a few minutes to chat with me about taking in her first season.
Brian Gosset: Put into words on your freshman season
Jordyn Oliver: This season was breathtaking, I didn’t expect the season to play out like it did. I didn’t see us going 30-6, and I didn’t see us going that deep into the playoffs. However, I did see us winning district but we all know how that turned out.
BG: Seeing all these awards come in, talk about your work ethic
JO: It says that I push myself to my limits. I work hard, I am dedicated to getting better every day.
BG: Which award has meant the most to you?
JO: District Offensive Player of Year. Why? At the beginning of the season, I made a list of season goals with my parents. One of those goals was to win District Offensive Player of the Year. So it means something to me to achieve one to those goals.
BG: Which award has been the most surprising?
JO: Receiving the TABC All-State. I never really thought about winning any awards on the state level and the fact that the coaches vote for you is crazy. I’m even more surprised to be the only freshman to make the list out of all classes.
