Jordan Moats had a stellar high school basketball career for the Taylorville Tornadoes, and he was honored at Monday night’s city council meeting for his hard work for the team. The senior at Taylorville High School was named as Taylorville’s Youth of the Month for March.
Moats scored 1,007 points in his THS basketball career, making him one of only ten boys’ players in school history to score more than 1,000 points. He also helped lead the Tornadoes to their first 20-win season in more than 30 years.
Moats says the sport, the program, and especially this year’s team have had a huge impact on his life.
Moats says the team’s motto this year was “together”, and the team lived by that motto through their strong 2017-18 season.
