Right at home: Jordan Gore's summer in the Pee Dee

 

FLORENCE, S.C. (WMBF) - After completing his freshman year at South Carolina, Jordan Gore was pleasantly surprised with the Division One experience. 

"It was fun," Gore said. "All the coaches made it fun to be there, and it made the game fun, and I think that's what makes South Carolina a good ballclub."

Before that, he made highlights with the Conway Tigers, and now he's sticking around the Palmetto State for summer league play right in between his college and high school locations, settling in with the Florence RedWolves.

"My parents have been here almost every game, my grandparents, I've been able to catch up with them and see how they are doing, because I didn't get to see them much, playing at USC," Gore said.

But he's also seeing benefits on the field one month into the season.

"He's out here working everyday, and he's taking a lot of ground balls before every game, and then during the game, you can see his approach has been changing since even the start of the season, so you know that he's doing well," said Blake Maxwell, the RedWolves' head coach this summer.

And Gore feels there's no better way to work on the specifics of his game before suiting back up for the garnet and black. 

"I've been working on trying to hit the ball back up the middle, a lot of times I like to pull the ball, but it has been working well," he said.
