Via GHSF Daily — Jordan Triplett, a senior running back at GIAA school Frederica Academy of St. Simons Island, rushed for 404 yards and seven touchdowns on 40 carries last week in a 54-49 victory over Pinewood Christian.
Triplett’s big night put him over 2,000 yards rushing on the season (2,199) and over 8,000 in his career (8,055). Triplett, listed at 5 feet, 11 inches and 210 pounds, is committed to Air Force.
“What makes Jordan such a great back is his vision on the field and his pursuit of perfection off of it,” Frederica Academy offensive coordinator Bo Yeargan said. “In the game, he has the ability to find creases and explode through them. In practice and in life, Jordan attacks everything to the best of his ability. Nothing less.”
Triplett is GHSF Daily’s Player of the Week.
