Former Talihina Golden TigerÂ Jordan EagleRoad, Â a 6-1 shooting guard has signed a letter of intent to play basketball for the Carl Albert State College Vikings for the 2013-14 season.
Carl Albert being close to Talihina was a huge factor in EagleRoad choosing CASC.
â€śComing to CASC will allow my family and friends to come watch me play,â€ť EagleRoad said. â€śI chose Carl Albert because it was close to home, the people were nice and they made me feel like I was at home.â€ť
Keeping talent local is important to CASC men's coach Mike St. John.
â€śFor us to be able to provide an opportunity for a student from LeFlore County with his potential is an inspiring opportunity,â€ť he said. â€śWe are not always afforded the occasion to have in our programs the upper echelon athlete from our county.â€ť
