With the busy time of working on as much preseason football content as possible, it’s nice to get a letter from an appreciative player to help us keep what we do in perspective.
Jordan Greenlee is a 6-foot-4, 235-pound defensive end from Vintage of Napa who had a problem after last season. He only played five games for the Crushers after a transfer from nearby Justin-Siena and therefore didn’t have much for any college coaches to go on in regards to any possible scholarship offers.One of those he contacted was us at Cal-Hi Sports. Various camps and combines were recommended, but special attention as always was paid to the Nike events put on by our longtime colleagues at Student Sports. We may not be part of Student Sports any more, but there just aren’t any events that are close.
This year’s Nike events were held in May at San Leandro High under the title The Oakland Opening. Greenlee did indeed attend and wrote this week to give us an update.
‘I took your advice on the Nike Camp and got invited to the Opening in Oakland,” he said. “I made a lot of friends and got some great coaching. Ever since then, things have taken off. I got ranked as the No. 1 DL by North Bay Preps. I’m also being actively recruited by coach Joe Salave’a-Washington State, coach Jim Jeffcoat-Colorado, coach Dave Baldwin-Oregon State and multiple other schools.”
Greenlee and his teammates open the season Friday at Woodcreek of Roseville.
With all the struggles of trying to build the Cal-Hi Sports web site and business, it’s nice to know that there are many different ways in which our expertise can benefit a player. Thanks, Jordan, and have a great season.
