The class of 2019 is already filled with varsity level athletes, most of whom have already achieved Top-Scholar recognition. Throughout the entire class two athletes seem to stand out of the crowd; Jordan Hallet and Tristan Halloran. In Hallet’s sophomore year, he was a three-season athlete, and he was a part of the JV football team as a quarterback, the varsity basketball team as a forward, and was the captain of the JV baseball team as an outfielder. Whereas Halloran was a two season athlete, but was on the varsity football team as a linebacker, and also a captain on the JV baseball team as a third-baseman.

Both Hallet and Halloran started playing sports when they were young. Halloran started playing baseball when he was only four years old and started playing football at an older age of 10 years old. While on the other hand, Hallet began playing all three of his sports since he was only four years old.

Some may think that being an underclassman on a varsity-level team, which are predominantly upperclassmen, is intimidating. But when you have support from the team, it is easy to collectively get better as a whole, and Hallet agrees. “I had my brother, [Jake,] on the team, and I learned almost everything from him. He always pushed me harder so I got better each and every day, [and he helped me] get used to the speed. [During] the first game I was nervous, but after I made a shot and my teammates cheered me on, including my brother, all the butterflies went away,” said Hallet.

Although Halloran made the football team his sophomore year, it was robbed of him almost entirely. “I have two herniated disks in the right side of my neck, and they pinch the nerve of my spinal cord when my neck is moved really fast. So, when I would tackle someone to my left, my neck would go to the side and pinch the nerve, which gave me what they call a ‘stinger.’ That’s when the spinal nerve is pinched, and it would make the entire left side of my body go numb and tingling would occur in my arm like fire,” said Halloran. This year, he is set to go play again but he must wear a neck pad to stop his neck from moving too much. “It was very hard to deal with, it crushed me. To have to stand on the sideline and not be able to play, it was terrible. I just can’t wait to get back out there,” said Halloran.

Together, the two boys have been on the same club football and baseball teams since eighth grade, and sophomore year, the two were captains together on the high school’s baseball team. “As a captain I supported others by helping the freshmen who were new to the school and taught them all I knew on how to get through high school as a student athlete,” said Halloran. “I’ve always wanted to push my teammates and make them better. I would do anything for my guys. You can’t win a game by yourself,” said Hallet.

Together the two see big plans for this year’s upcoming seasons. “This year we are looking to have a big breakout year. There are lots of returning players from the grade above us. I can’t wait to see what we do this year and I think it’s going to be a big turnaround for our school. And you bet that I will be a part of that all the way,” said Halloran.

“I want a state ring for all three sports. I want to prove that Severna Park has athletes and we are going to put ourselves back on the map. You will see me working to get there, no matter what,” said Hallet.
