Belleville Althoff's Jordan Goodwin To Have Surgery Ends Season, Career

Jordan Goodwin (St. Louis) became the all-time leading scorer and rebounder at Belleville Althoff on Tuesday night in what was the last game of his high school career. Goodwin will have surgery on his shoulder which will end his season.

Goodwin will have surgery later this week.

Goodwin led Althoff to the 3A state championship last year as a junior.

Goodwin broke the scoring record previously held by Kevin Lisch who starred at St. Louis as a collegian.

Goodwin continued to play after dislocating his shoulder earlier in the month against East St. Louis. The shoulder had been a lingering issue for Goodwin who decided he couldn’t play through it any longer.
