Addision, a junior, is a versatile member of the Tuscarora football team.
"He plays quarterback, he plays receiver, he plays defensive back," Tuscarora football coach Vince Ahearn said during the award presentation. "... The thing that I think separates him amongst many others and makes him an unsung hero is that he plays for his family, he plays for his mother ..., he plays for our teammates and he plays for our community. And that's what makes him an unsung hero."
Ahearn also talked about the three core aspects of Tuscarora football program -- academics, character and performance on the field -- and Addison's dedication to all three.
"Jordan has a great story because when he first came in here he struggled academically," Ahearn said. "We talked and we had a family visit, and Jordan since that time has had over a 3.0, and this past term he got a 3.75."
In return, Addison emphasized his coach's help and support as key factors that helped him get his grades in line.
"It wasn't easy," Addison said. "But I just did everything [Coach Ahearn] asked me to do. I knew he had my back, and I just trusted him."
Coach Ahearn highlighted Addison as an embodiment of the team's ideals.
"We talk about being selfless, not selfish, and I think that's part of what you're seeing, not just for him but for our program and how we play."
For Addison, receiving the award in front of his mother had extra significance.
"She's been here from the beginning," Addison said. "She's been pushing me every day, whether it's on or off the field, in school, and I'm just happy to make her happy."
As for what's next, Addison has drawn the interest of college scouts, but he has yet to make a decision about where he'll go.
"It's a great experience," Addison said. "I'm just trusting the process, and I'm just trying to make my mom proud."
