To call Jordan Longino a gifted athlete would be a serious understatement.
The Germantown Academy junior is Pennsylvania's Class 4-A Boys' Basketball Player of the Year, according to the state's sports writers.
The 6-foot, 4-inch guard is a major-college recruit in both basketball and football.
In basketball, he averaged 22.9 points per game to go with elite playmaking, rebounding and defensive skills.
In basketball, he’s the 46th-ranked high school junior in the country, with scholarship offers from Villanova, Indiana, Virginia, Florida, Maryland, Penn State and others. He was also a first-team all-state basketball selection last season.
In football he’s a quarterback who threw for more than 2,000 yards with 16 touchdowns and just four interceptions. He's starting to attract NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision college attention in that sport, too.
The state's Class 4-A Coach of the Year is Brendan Stanton of Pope John Paul II, who took over a losing program two years ago and went 20-5 this season, won the District 1 championship and reached the state quarterfinals before the season was cut short by the coronavirus pandemic.
There were no York-Adams League players on the 4-A all-state list. The only player from District 3 to be recognized was Jake Kelly, a 6-3 senior guard from Bishop McDevitt, who was named to the second team.
