Jordan Conn, a Woodbridge native and former Amity High School hockey and football player, received a pair of academic honors from the University of New Hampshire. Conn was named the Kinesiology Department’s Sports Management and Leadership Scholar of the Year for 2020-21.
The junior Sports Studies major has a 3.71 GPA and earlier this spring was inducted into the National College Athlete Honor Society, Chi Alpha Sigma, for student-athletes who achieve a cumulative grade-point average of 3.5 or higher, achieved at least junior standing academically and are of good moral character.
Conn, a red-shirt sophomore kicker/punter on the Wildcats’ football team roster, played two seasons before the pandemic cancelled last fall. He played one game this spring, booting two PATs and handling kickoffs, before the schedule was suspended.
He also interns in the athletics department’s athletics communications office, where his duties include graphic design, social media, writing and serving as the broadcast voice for the UNH women’s hockey team.
