ST. PAUL’S SCHOOL STUDENT-ATHLETE NAMED GATORADE® NEW HAMPSHIRE BOYS BASKETBALL PLAYER OF THE YEAR
CHICAGO (March 26, 2020) — In its 35th year of honoring the nation’s best high school athletes, The Gatorade Company, today announced Jordan Geronimo of St. Paul’s School as its 2019-20 Gatorade New Hampshire Boys Basketball Player of the Year. Geronimo is the first Gatorade New Hampshire Boys Basketball Player of the Year to be chosen from St. Paul’s School.
The award, which recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence, but also high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the field, distinguishes Geronimo as New Hampshire’s best high school boys basketball player.
The 6-foot-6, 205-pound senior forward averaged 18.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 2.0 steals and 2.0 blocks per game this past season as the Pelicans battled to an 8-14 record. Geronimo is a two-time Lakes Region League All-Star and a 2020 All-New England Class A honoree.
He is ranked as the nation’s No. 90 recruit in the Class of 2020 as rated by 247Sports.
The head of St. Paul’s Student Cultural Alliance, Geronimo helps provide a space for the school’s minority population to feel comfortable.
“Jordan is ultra-athletic,” said Gregor Makechnie, head coach of Proctor Academy. “He’s a very good shot-blocker and a solid defender. He finishes well around the rim, and he seems like a very good teammate—positive and encouraging.”
Geronimo has maintained a 3.98 GPA in the classroom and represents one of the state’s top candidates in meeting the Gatorade award’s broad criteria. He has signed a national letter of intent to play basketball on scholarship at Indiana University this fall.
