Each week, will be getting to know a new student-athlete from the area by asking him/her a series of 20 questions that will provide insight into the thoughts and personalities of the boys and girls who are doing great things on and off the local courts, fields, tracks, and courses.

  • Name: Jordyn Flora
  • Age: 17
  • Current school: Presentation Academy
  • Current Sports playing: Softball
  • Parish/grade school attended: St. Stephen Martyr
  • Colleges considering or attending: University of Louisville, Spalding University and Eastern Kentucky University.

Bio: I have been playing softball since I was four years old and I play first and third base for Presentation. During my freshman year, I had to sit out because of an ACL and meniscus tear. My dream is to play softball for the University of Louisville.

1. What is your proudest athletic moment? Hitting my first homerun.

2. What is your ideal meal/snack before a game? I drink a sweet tea and eat a granola bar before games and then drink water after that.

3. If you were trying out for American Idol, what would be your "go to" song? Stay by Florida Georgia Line.

4. Which athlete do you look up to on a college/professional level? Why? I look up to Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez because I have watched them play for a long time. Jeter is the leader on the field and always talks and lets people know what is going on as the shortstop. Alex doesn’t let much get by him at third so those are the two I watch and want to be like.

5. What is your favorite movie quote? “Right turn Clybe.”

6. How does your faith impact your approach to sports? My faith helps me be a team player. I respect my coaches, teammates, and opponents. My team prays before every game and I just thank god that I can be out on the field with my team playing the game that I love.

7. What is your favorite cartoon character? Scooby Doo.

8. All-time favorite board game? Monopoly.

9. Droid, iPhone, or Blackberry? Favorite app? iPhone and Candy Rush.

10. What is your favorite local (non chain) restaurant? Tumbleweed.

11. What is your favorite reality TV show? Pretty Little Liars.

12. What is your greatest fear? A clown hugging me.

13. What is your best quality/characteristic? I’m trustworthy.

14. Favorite junk/comfort food? Blizzard from Dairy Queen.

15. What is your favorite hour of the day? Why? Noon, because in the summer it starts to get hot and I can go swimming. During the school year it is lunch time.

16. What is your nickname and how did you get it? J-Flo, because people don’t feel like saying my whole name. My other nickname is Big Red. I have red hair and another girl on my team has red hair and is younger so she is little red.  

17. Where is your favorite place to volunteer/provide community service? St. Joseph.

18. What is one hidden talent that you possess? I am a pretty good singer.

19. If time machines were real, and you could choose just one - to travel forward or backward - which would you select and why? Forward because I want to know what my future looks like and how I will end up.

20. If you could pick one person, dead or alive, and ask them just one question that they had to answer honestly, who would you pick and what would you ask? I would ask my grandfather what his favorite thing about me was.
