On Nov. 13, Eagle’s Landing senior basketball player Jordan Session signed his National Letter of Intent to become a Panther as a freshman.
“I just felt comfortable with coach Ron [Hunter] and all the others guys at Georgia State, said the 6-foot-9 Session. “I felt like it was a good system that I could fit into and a place I could go to immediately and make an impact.”
“I really like the fact that we could sign a talented in-state player like Jordan,” Hunter said. “He is a very good shooter with great energy and is the perfect fit for our system. He is also very athletic and moves up and down the court well.”
Last season, Session averaged nearly 10 points and seven rebounds while shooting 54 percent from the field for the Class AAAA champion Golden Eagles. He also played beside Isaiah Dennis, who is a member of the Georgia State team.
“He didn’t really tell me to come there but we did have an interest in playing together in college,” said Session, who was also considering Wichita State and Appalachian State.
Until then, Session wants to help Eagle’s Landing, which also lost Eric Wortham Jr. (Middle Tennessee State), Desmond Ringer (South Carolina) and Trevin Joseph, defend its state title.
“Personally I just want to help my team win state anyway possible,” Session said.
“I don’t have any personal goals. We just got one goal and that is to win state.”
Session said he also realizes everyone will be looking forward to playing the reigning champions.
“We got to remember that everybody is trying to beat us because we beat them last year,” Session said. “They don’t think we are going to be the same so we got to show them.”
The Golden Eagles suffered a tough loss to Greater Atlanta Christian last Saturday but aim to bounce back at North Clayton on Friday.
