Wallaces Breed Athletes: Excelling on the field is something that comes naturally to the Wallace family. Sophomore Jordan Wallace's father, Melvin, played with the San Diego Chargers. Her mother, Wendy, lettered in softball at Sacramento State.
Getting Hyphy: Though Jordan Wallace hails from a hotspot for hyphy and rap music in Vallejo, Calif., the sophomore stud is also a big country fan. Taylor Swift, Kellie Pickler and Faith Hill highlight her iPod.
Why I Have My Number: I wear number two because from as long as I can remember, I have a weird thing where I like everything in pairs. I am also a huge Derek Jeter fan!
