Character

Jordan Green has developed into one of program’s undisputed leaders—one whom other players look to when times are both good and bad. Always one to go above and beyond the call of duty, Green is many times the person responsible for organizing his teammates for community service or team-building activities. He also is one Coach Kennedy and his staff trusts to be a good communicator between the coaches and the team. Green is the same positive person for his teammates and coaches whether he is playing all 40 minutes of a game or spending time on the bench. He is quick to speak up and offer words of encouragement to teammates and manages his time well being very responsible when it comes to his many added responsibilities off the court. Green is reliable when it comes to dealing with media and is a go-to guy for the media relations staff when they need a spokesperson for the guys in the locker room. Whether it’s after a big win or a tough loss Green is well-spoken and responsible with media. He also was selected as Texas A&M’s male representative at the SEC SAAC meeting in late October.

Community

Green has participated a wide variety of community service projects, always being generous with his time and many talents. He worked at the Hall House, which included working with area homeless, and participated in school reading programs, specifically reading to elementary children at Brazos Christian School. For two straight years he has played a big role in Aggies Can, which stands out as the largest student-athlete run canned food drive in the nation. Green worked with Twin City Mission to assist with Phoebe’s Home (for women and children) by cleaning rooms and doing yard work. He has also helped out at the Aggie Garden, assisting the Texas A&M horticulture department by planting, digging holes and moving mud, and participated in the Christmas activities of local children’s home Still Creek Ranch by going with his teammates to Walmart to buy and wrap gifts for the kids there. Additionally, he was the keynote speaker at Still Creek Ranch’s end-of-the-year sports banquet. Green has traveled with Athletes in Action to East Asia, playing basketball and serving the community there, and was named the Fellowship of Christian Athlete’s Athlete of the Year.
