Slough Named C-2 Player of Year
Basically, there's just not much Jordan Slough can't do on a football field. With credentials as long as your arm, he's been named Huskerland Prep Report's 2013 Class C-2 player of the year.
Slough, a repeat all-state selection, also last month led his Doniphan-Trumbull team to its first-ever state championship last month. The Cardinals did it in style, finishing with a perfect 13-0 record.
When it comes to a prototype high school running back, Slough could be its model.
"Jordan is just an outstanding all around football player," says D-T head coach Brent Breckner. "He really worked hard all offseason to prepare himself for this year and it really paid off especially down the stretch in the playoffs. "Jordan has great vision, great agility and is able to be a physical runner as well. He's a threat to score every time he touches the football and is great at making people miss in space.
"Jordan is also an excellent receiver and was our leader in receptions this year. He's just a playmaker when you need a play he can always make something happen."
Want proof? How about rushing for 2,127 yards, catching 23 passes for another 531 yards and scoring a total of 41 touchdowns, that do it for you? That's more that some teams accumulate in a season...
As if that's not enough, Coach Breckner believes Slough just might be the best cover cornerback in Class C-2, plus he's an excellent kick returner...when teams actually kick the ball his way.
"Jordan also really performed well on the biggest stage, in our state championship game," says Coach Breckner, and he's right. Slough finished the day with four touchdowns in Doniphan-Trumbull's 32-13 win over two-time defending state champion Aquinas.
Coach Breckner reports Slough is enjoying the recruiting process and has plenty of options but isn't quite ready to make a decision just yet.
"Jordan believes it's really important that he finds a school that is the right fit for him to be successful on the field and in the classroom."++
