Talk to Seattle rookie Jordan Kent
for just a few minutes and two words come to mind right off the top of your head - maturity, discipline.
The former University of Oregon
three-sport star (basketball, track, football) summed up how he managed to win state championships in high school in both team and individual competition and then achieve both academic and athletic honors at the collegiate level.
"Anything I do, I just try to give it my all," Kent said during a recent Scout Radio interview.
"There are some things you have to sacrifice in college if this is something you want to pursue. You can't go out every night and you can't stay out late on the weekends and everything like that," he said. "You need to look at this as a job and realize that you've got a pretty fantastic opportunity here to make it to the next level, take advantage of it and make every day matter."
