|Position:||Graduate Assistant Coach|
Jordan Adams enters her first year as a graduate assistant coach for the A-State soccer program.
“Having Jordan on staff keeps her leadership and positive influence in our program,” Dooley said. “She has a high energy mentality and a competitive personality. She will help organize our defenders and handle defensive set pieces. She will also help breakdown opponent's film.”
Adams was a four-year letterwinner at A-State and served as a team captain during her senior season. She finished with seven goals and eight assists during her career, and split her time between the midfield and a defending position.
During her stint with the Red Wolves the team advanced to the semifinals of the conference tournament for the first time program in history and won a school record 11 matches when she was a freshman in 2012. During the run to the semifinals in 2013, Adams she played and started in all 20 matches and played a season-high 110 minutes against South Alabama in the semifinals.
She enjoyed the best of her career in 2015 when she scored a career-high five goals, including notching the game-winning goal against Mississippi Valley State.
The Longview, Texas native most recently served on the SBC Leadership Team during the 2015-16 academic season, an honor that is bestowed upon one student-athlete from each member school. In addition to her work with the Sun Belt, Adams also served on the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee at Arkansas State and ascended to the position of secretary.
She also was part of the inaugural class of student-athletes to take part in the first study abroad program offered by any university and their athletics department in the nation. The program goes hand-in-hand with the Red Wolves Leadership Academy, designed with the sole purpose to obtain 100 percent job placement for all student-athletes upon graduation.
