ATHLETE OF THE WEEK: JORDYN EGLITE
Alhambra High School senior Jordyn Eglite is this week’s Tribune Athlete of the Week, sponsored by Matthew C Rinn of State Farm.
Eglite has been one of the Bulldogs’ top performers all season, and as a senior leader has been important to the program’s development on and off the court.
Eglite scored 22 points in the Bulldogs’ final game of the regular season against Mt. Diablo, and added another seven in the Bulldogs’ first playoff game since 2014.
Eglite was the only member of the Bulldog team that was present for both of those games in NCS play.
“Jordyn exemplifies many of the qualities we strive for every member of our program to have,” says Coach Chris Petiti.
“He is the ultimate team player; never hesitating to get the ball to his teammates when they are in a position to succeed, while still taking advantage of the opportunities that are made available to himself. He puts his heart into everything he does; a leader by example. Jordyn’s consistent play had been a valuable source of stability for our team this season.”
Eglite has been with the program since his sophomore year.
