Hi I'm Jordan Ransom! I have an older sister, a younger sister, a younger brother, a mom, a dad, and a step-mom. My family is very important to me -- they always support me :)
I have tons of gymnastics experience, starting in third grade at Stars Gymnastics and continuing until sixth grade ending at level 9. When I was 10 years old I was a level 8 Texas State champion. I loved it but I had to retire from gymnastics because it was too hard on my body.
Gymnastics was a big part of my life, and I didn't want all of my training to go to waste. I discovered diving in my freshmen year at Stratford High School and immediately loved it! All those years of gymnastics training helped me with my diving skills. I love diving for my high school and my diving club. I currently dive for the West Houston Diving Club and my coach, Anastasia Pozdniakova, who is an Olympian, is really supportive.
Since my freshman year I have been steadily working on my dive skills. I have a strong work ethic both inside and outside the pool. I have a good sense of who I am and what I can do athletically. I am pretty much an open book -- I am very passionate about diving and hopefully coaching diving some day in the future.
As I'm one of four kids and finances are tight -- I would love to dive on a scholarship, so please, please consider me! I'm a hard worker both in my studies and in the pool. I won't let you down.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile, now go watch my videos :)
I am currently the team captain of our high school diving team. Some of my duties involve keeping track of other teammates' scores, assisting with their diving improvements, and organizing the teams for our high school's "White & Gold" annual meet.
I come from a very active "sports" family who emphasizes a healthy balance of school work and athletics. In our house, it's assumed that your academics are "taken care of" if you plan on participating in any sport. You could say we all are very familiar with "No pass, No play"!
As part of the Second Baptist Church student ministry, I have helped with community service projects during Spring break such as renovating housing for the Vietnamese community and serving meals at the Star of Hope in Houston.
