Vikings Baseball Alumn Jordan Roper ( SS and captain for Lynnfield High ) signed his Letter Of Intent to go play baseball for Div.II Assumption College last night.
" Jordan is a ball player with an oversized heart and a plus compete level, he has been competing with a chip on his shoulder since he was 12. Every accolade he has obtained has been earned by his work ethic and determination to succeed. Every game Jordan played for us he was willing to run through a wall for his team, he is the type of player you point to and say 'if we have one game to win tomorrow....then we want that guy on our team, he makes other players around him better by showing his teammates how much he cares and is willing to put on the line for them'.
What made him such a coachable kid and leader to all his peers was the way he worked & prepared on a daily basis...he is a self motivated young man, whose selflessness, baseball I.Q. and intangibles make him the type of player any coach would want to build their program around....he will forever be a part of the Vikings Baseball Family"
- Coach Crovo
Coach Crovo has been coaching Jordan since he was 12, and has a great coach to player relationship that extends off the field as well. We will continue to keep tabs on Jordans progress at Assumption College and he will be around this summer to help work with our current Vikings Baseball players!
