A day in the life of Kylie Cordon; interesting? Not exactly. At 6:19 a.m., Cordon’s alarm starts ringing. She arises from bed, pulls on sweats and makes her way to the BDAC where she works out with the volleyball team every morning. After working hard for half an hour, she returns to bed for nap number one of the day. Cordon wakes up 15 minutes before the start of her first class, still manages to get there on time and “look great every day. Everyone wants me for my body,” she says.
After attending classes, Cordon returns to her room in the mid-afternoon to lay down for nap number two. After a few hours, she arises once more to eat dinner quickly before making her way to volleyball practice. “I like to practice, I like to practice,” she says in a sing-song tone.
“I don’t know, I don’t do anything ever.” Cordon comments about her social night life. After volleyball, Cordon will be found finding more food, playing Call of Duty, watching a movie, or talking on the phone with her boyfriend, Kendall Prescott.
Before retiring to bed, she usually takes a shower and always “reads [her] scripts.” Sleep is important to her so she can get up in the morning and do it all over again.
Cordon was born and raised in West Point, Utah. She graduated from Syracuse High School with, “a lot of people.” Her favorite thing about high school was playing sports and chillin’ with friends. She participated in volleyball, basketball, and track.
At home, Cordon lives with her mom and dad, Wendi and Kirt Cordon, and her three younger siblings; Brandi, Alex, and Lexie. She says that her family loves her very much, is supportive, and funny.
Volleyball is Cordon’s favorite sport to play and is the reason she is at USU-Eastern. She plays outside hitter and wears the number nine on her jersey. “I wish I was number ten, but Miranda took it.” Working hard and competing are Cordon’s favorite things about the sport. She likes “intensity, like, intenseness,” and hates losing and laziness. If she could be unreal at any position, she would choose to be a setter. Watch out Danee Merrell… Kylie Cordon is coming for you!
Teammate Malorie White said she works hard all the time, in practice and games. She’s not tall, but can hit and block so good. She is spontaneous and makes things exciting. Even if we do nothing, she makes it fun. There is never a dull moment with her. Also, I love her dance moves. She can def bust a move.” And speaking of busting moves, Cordon’s life dream is to be a singer and dancer. But sadly, she doesn’t think she is good at either. “It just doesn’t flow with me. It’s not in my blood.”
We asked Cordon our signature question: waffles versus pancakes, and she replied, “That’s too hard, I love them both.” Our interview took place in the school cafeteria, and throughout the whole interview, Cordon took several trips back to get more food. She seemed to think that readers would care what she ate for lunch that day, so here you have it! She ate “a soft pork taco with rice, black beans, a little bit of lettuce, and a little bit of salsa.” Yum.
Kylie Cordon is a laid back, chill, cool cat. “I do the cat daddy,” she says as she breaks out in dance and laughs at herself. Her laugh is, to say the least, pretty unique. She has a signature “honk” that sounds slightly reminiscent of a fog horn. If you’d like to hear for yourself, send her a Hey Tell invite at Kylie Cordon. She said she loves technology.
