On and off the field, Jackson Sorey, is a humble kid looking to make an impact in life. Sorey’s life almost revolves around school with his mother, Ryane Sorey, who is the Mental Health Coordinator for the Sheridan School District.
Sorey received great news today, as he was announced as the Player of the Week two weeks ago according to Prep Baseball Report (prepbaseballreport.com).
“I think getting pitcher of the week just shows that hard work eventually pays off,” says Sorey. “Everyone is committed to be the best team that we can be.”
“I really struggled the first few games of my unior season. I had to refocus and put in some extra work to get things back on track. I think all players go throuogh this type of thing at some point. The important thing is to take steps through it.
“As a parent, it is always so rewarding to see your child recognized for his accomplishents. Jackson was throwing a baseball as soon a his little hand was ale to grasp one,” said Ms. Sorey. “I am thankful that he has found his way to the Sheridan High School baseball team. It is a team with a ton of talent and great leadership. It is a legacy program and the oppportunies for Jackson to grow as an athlete with this team are endless. For PBR to recognize Jackson amid all the talent on this team is such an honor.
These are the numbers the uncommitted Sorey displayed to gain player of the week honors:

The younger Sorey has the drive to be both successful on and off the field as he currently has a 4.09 cumulative GPA and scored a 31 on his ACT. In college, the talented young man wants to major in biology with a pre-med focus. Then, go to medical school.
