Jordan was a two-way starter and co-captain for the 2005 Maroons were he led his team by example on and off the field. A starting middle-linebacker and long snapper both his junior and senior years as well as a sure-handed tight-end his senior season, Jordan helped his team win Conference, District and Regional Titles during his 2005 campaign. He recorded 104 tackles including 43 solo stops and 23 for a loss his senior season, and was the team defensive point leader in both his junior and senior years. His dedication and leadership qualities led to his teammates voting him Team MVP his senior season. His head coach, Ken Hofer, was quoted as saying “Jordan is the best linebacker I have coached in my 39 years.”

Jordan also was a two-year varsity basketball starter, participated in track and field and was a four-year student counsel representative. Jordan was actively involved in the Student Leadership program throughout his high school years.

He thanked his family and friends, “for their gracious support throughout my high school career. Your encouragement inspired me to work harder in order to be the best that I could be. I also thank all of my coaches and trainers over the years for teaching me the game. A special thanks to my head coach Ken Hofer and defensive coordinator Ron ‘Satch’ England, I know I am a better player and more importantly a better person, as a result of the experience.” Jordan will attend Saginaw Valley State University on a football scholarship where he will play for the Cardinals and work on a business management degree.
