Jordan English

Jordan English put up Ruthian numbers in his four years playing baseball
at Windsor Locks High School, batting .375, 403, 487, and 523 respectively compiling 97 RBI, 130 hits, 50 extra base hits and 12 home runs.

Amazing when you consider that as his star rose other teams took notice and began to walk him intentionally. That strategy did not prevent Jordan from leading the Raiders to two State Championships in 2005 and 2006 and trips to the state finals in 2004 and 2007.

Jordan was named All-Conference all four years of his high school career
and All-State the last three. His senior year he was selected to the Connecticut Senior All Star Team. And Jordan did not take the summers off.

He was a member of the 2005 Post 36 American Legion team that won the U17 State Championship.

After graduating from WLHS Jordan was a three-year starter for Bryant
University baseball team. He met the challenge of the Division I competition by helping Bryant to two conference championships finishing with a career batting average of .283 and hitting a record setting three home runs in one game against the Delaware State University.

After a year playing professional baseball for the Vallejo Admirals in Vallejo California Jordan brought his talent to the Greater Hartford Twilight League where he has played since 2014.

He has also turned his attention to coaching baseball at the AAU, high school and college levels.

Jordan and his wife Kristen have been married 6 years and have a daughter Harper who is 17 months old. They vacation locally and when he has time you can find him on the golf course.

Opinions on who was the best baseball player from Windsor Locks may vary but there is little question that Jordan English is part of the discussion. Eye popping statistics combined with an unmatched work ethic made him a leader on a number of championship teams and an easy choice for selection to the Windsor Locks Athletic Hall of Fame.
