MANVEL, Tx – Manvel women’s basketball coach Bryan Harris says it’s been nice have had a couple of “toys” to play with.  Last year, he coached Gatorade’s National Girls Basketball Player of the Year in Brianna Turner.  While Turner was the focal point of a state title team, this year it’s all about Jordan Hosey.

Hosey is set to play in the McDonald’s All-American Game.  While she’s clearly a star on the court, her teammates say Hosey is a real class act outside of basketball.

“She’s the most outgoing person I’ve ever met,” Manvel senior Amieya Jackson said.  “Jordan’s super goofy. She doesn’t really brag about basketball. Outside of basketball, she’s a completely different person.

“I know when it’s time to be serious, and that’s when I step out onto the court,” Hosey said. “Outside of basketball, I just like to be goofy with my friends.”

Hosey says she’s always trying to keep the mood lighthearted and claims one of her best skills is her pregame dances.

Dancing comes easy, but Jordan admits the classroom didn’t always feel as comfortable.

“I found out I had dyslexia in the third grade,” Hosey said. “When I first found out, I wanted to give up. I didn’t want to tell people about it.  That was a big step I had to accomplish and get more comfortable with.”

Hosey now says her favorite subject is government.  She’s committed to play basketball at the University of Texas next season, where she plans to study special education.
