Boyd senior Jordyn Todd signed her letter of intent to play volleyball at Western Colorado Wednesday morning.

The all-state outside hitter and Wise County MVP helped Boyd reach the state tournament for the second straight year.

After inking her letter, Todd’s focus immediately shifted to preparing for the state tournament.

“I’m signing for my future and you know, we’re talking about high school still,” Todd said. “It’s a lot, [but] I’m super excited. My family has helped so much with this decision. [Western Colorado] is so special and I’m really happy to be a part of it.”

Todd set a school record in 2017 for kills in a season with 580. She was also named to the Texas Sportswriters Association 3A first-team.

Todd won a district title all four years and helped lead the Lady Jackets to an undefeated record in league play this season. Boyd has been the No. 1 ranked team in the Texas Girls Coaches Association 3A poll since Sept. 18.

The Lady Jackets fell in the 3A semifinal to eventual champion Goliad last year.

“We’re about to redeem ourselves,” Todd said. “Practices have been super intense. I’m ready to go. I’ve been watching film nonstop. I’m pumped.”

Todd said she chose Western Colorado over the Air Force Academy. She plans to major in psychology.

“It means everything,” Todd said. “I’ve been working for this moment since I started playing volleyball when I was 8.”
