While I'm not a Jordan follower, this is too bad, you only get to play high school football once in your lifetime and it would've been nice to see how Mason did his senior season. He was a very good player and with Jordan losing all of their O line and D line he was one of the top kids coming back. Hopefully for his sake he reconsiders and decides to play. Either way good luck to you Mason!

Play football. A truly great athlete can do multiple sports just fine. His baseball won't suffer. It sounds like there is more to the story but one can never tell. Specializing in sports is a mistake. If you study professional athletes the VAST MAJORITY were multiple sport athletes. I know of two BYU baseball players that got drafted in this past draft and one did two sports in HS (football and baseball and was planning on doing two in college) and the other did three in high school (baseball, golf and basketball).

Why is this even newsworthy? Good luck to the boy, but this isn't big news to anyone outside of Jordan High.

wow UVU baseball? That's amazing and he should make sure to practice baseball. That's a tough league. And he must be soo good seeing as he's going there that he should plan for the pros.

Mr. Hoop - your sarcasm isn't appreciated. Playing baseball at a division 1 program IS a great accomplishment. All my boys have played baseball, with one playing at the junior college level and then on to a D1 program. When he is finished he will have paid for his education by playing baseball and has had a great experience in the process! Just because baseball isn't on par with basketball and football, particularly from a fan-attendance standpoint, it is a wonderful sport and Mason should be proud of his accomplishments.

As far as football, it is a violent sport and you are a blown-knee away from potentionally never playing baseball again. With the scholarship money on the line I know what my decision would be. . .

A big part of the reason he isn't playing football is the same reason he quit his sophomore year. The coaches.


Totally agree with the last post. He is quitting because of the coaches, they are out of control over there! Jordan football is not what the general public thinks it is.
