Wednesday, Nov. 14, marked the beginning of what the NCAA qualifies as the regular signing period for most Division I and II sports. On day one, Jordan Vick signed her National Letter of Intent (NLI) to play volleyball at Union University.
Approached by Coach Darrin McClure, Union’s head volleyball coach, during her sophomore season at CHS, Jordan held off on a verbal commitment until the end of her junior season. By signing her NLI to play with Union, she has finally made this decision final.
“I’ve known I wanted to play volleyball at Union since I was in eighth grade. It’s my dream school,” said Jordan of her decision to sign with Union.
During her career at CHS, Jordan recorded 2,855 career assists, 1,374 career digs, and 1,290 career kills. She led her team to four district championships, four regional runners-up positions, and two state final fours. Multiple times, she was named the Lady Lions’ MVP, All-District and District MVP, and to the All-Tournament Teams for District and Region. For the past two years, “The Jackson Sun” has named her to its All-West Tennessee First Team, and tapped her as West Tennessee Volleyball Player of the Year.
“Jordan is one of those once in a life-time competitors and athletes that every coach dreams of having the opportunity to coach. She never took a day off, or even took a drill off for that matter, and used every opportunity to elevate not only her own performance, but that of each teammate as well,” said Coach Stephen Vick, Jordan’s dad. “She was truly an extension of the CHS coaching staff on the court, and has left a mark on Camden Volleyball that will not be soon forgotten.”
“I couldn’t be prouder of Jordan and her decision to continue her education and volleyball career at Union,” said Tracy Vick, Jordan’s mom. “She’s very confident in her choice, and I know she’ll be happy there, which makes a mom feel great! I’m excited to be her number one fan all over again!”
