Joseph Thompson: Explain the situation with you moving around.
Jordan Tribble: It wasn’t planned at all. The last couple of schools I’ve attended didn’t go the way I wanted due to injuries, coach resigning (Oak Ridge Military Academy), transfer issues (bonifide move paper work at Holmes County), but in a way it made me stronger mentally. Although I lost almost 2 years of playing , I now realize what I have to do and to always keep my head up and no matter what the circumstance. Trust God always! I’m in a good place now with a great coach and great teammates. Everything happens for a reason I know for sure I am where I am supposed to be now.
