Pueblo East guard Jordan Gregory is on quite a roll. He had a career best night last week and this week he's our "Loaf ‘N Jug High School Athlete of the Week."
Gregory was named All-State a year ago as a junior and he's playing even better this year. Jordan averages 27.6 points a game which is third in the state. Friday night, in a win over Pueblo Central, Jordan scored a career high 42 points.
Gregory told News First 5 Sports Director Lee Douglas, "This is the first time I've been "Athlete of the Week." I remember a few years ago my sister got it, so it's good to keep it in the family. It's a very prestigious award so I couldn't be happier."
Jordan's sister is Maleah Gregory who was named "Athlete of the Week" in January of 2008.
Jordan is also on quite a roll in the classroom carrying a 4.2 grade point average. He'll play basketball at Montana next season where he received a full-ride scholarship.
