            Even in defeat, Jordan Davis can amaze.

            Southeast Bulloch’s baseball season came to an end last week via two heartbreaking losses to Dodge County in the Region 3-AA tournament, but the Yellow Jackets’ ace pitcher gave a great performance in his final appearance for SEB.

            With the first game venturing into extra innings, the senior lefty was called upon to go above and beyond the normal call of a starter and came through with flying colors.

            Davis pitched 10 innings and struck out 16 before finally being relieved in the Jackets’ 11-inning loss.

            “I was proud of myself for doing so well, but it would have been great to get the win,” said Davis. “We didn’t do quite as well as we thought we could this season, but that’s the way it goes sometimes. There are a lot of guys coming back next year who should make this team better.”

            Despite the season coming to an early end, others have noticed Davis’ efforts.

            Earlier this year, Davis signed a letter of intent to play for the Savannah College of Art and Design and will get to continue his playing career at the next level.

            “It’s a thrill to be able to play in college,” said Davis. “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. I’m ready to get back to work so that I can keep improving. Maybe I can go even farther.”
