Tide sophomore outfielder Jordan Praytor has been named to the 2006 SEC Good Works team as announced by the league office this afternoon.
Praytor, who is having a career year on the field, has been just as busy off of it. She has served her community by reading to children at Oakdale and Oakhill Elementary schools as part of American Education Week. The Vancouver, Wash. native also volunteered in the Gatorade 60 program which encourages children to participate in 60 minutes of activity a day at Holt Elementary School. She is also a Student Athlete Advisory Council Representative.
“Jordan is an extremely giving person,” said Karin Lee, the director of Alabama’s Life Skills Program. “At the beginning of her freshman year, she told me she wanted to get involved in any way possible, and she has volunteered numerous hours at the hospital pediatric ward volunteering with the kids among other things. She is always willing to help whenever her schedule permits.”
On the softball field she currently ranks second on the team with a .409 batting average and eight home runs while her .660 slugging percentage is tops on the team.
