    Dirkson is a name not known alot over the years. Nice to see some new names thrown about. Jordan came out this year looking like the team to beat and they followed through. Nice to see someone other than Bingham in the headlines.
    Jordan has a roster second to none. Lisk, Gomez, Shaver, Krueger, Hathaway, Dirkson. I started going to the JHS games over Kearns to see what all the hype was about. And they gave good shows. When Shaver wasn't swinging for the fence, he actually hit pretty well. Gomez amazed me everytime I saw him pitch. Hes a small dude to throw MLB style ball. Dirkson's curve ball was something I never saw before. The chemistry in this team was amazing. The coolness they had and the way they spoke to one another not just the players but the parents in the stands. Made me feel like maybe all these kids were a family. The team and fans were always great and welcoming at their field and I noticed a great respect thry showed at opposing team fields.
    Second to known. Great team and coaching.
