Born in Memphis, TN, Jordan fell in love with competition at an early age. He first picked up a football and basketball at the age of 10 and didn’t look back.
Jordan played both sports throughout his high school days, where he lettered in both basketball and football at St. Benedict. His dedication to athletics, football in particular, lead him to receiving 20+ scholarship offers, before ultimately deciding to attend Ole Miss and becoming a Rebel. At Ole Miss Jordan overcame trial after trial until breaking out during his Senior season, leading the Rebels in rushing and also being named a Team Captain for the program. Following his senior year, he was given the John Vaught Award of Excellence on behalf of the Ole Miss program, and in April of 2018, he was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in the 5th round of the NFL Draft. Jordan enjoyed a successful rookie season in 2018, as his Colts advanced to the AFC Divisional Round of the playoffs. Off the field, Jordan can be found getting dubs on Fortnite, and relaxing waterside with his family.

What advice would you give a younger football player?
Everyone’s route is different. You can reach your goals by just taking one step at a time. Don’t get caught up in having to go one way to the NFL. I know several D2, and even D3 players that have made it to the league. Go wherever you can play. The opportunity is everything. Also, the importance of work ethic can’t be exaggerated.
What does being an Ultra Athlete mean to you?
Being an Ultra athlete has everything to do with mindset. It starts at the beginning of your day, every single day. You have to be able to tell yourself in anything in life, not just sport, that today I am going to be better than yesterday.
What is your favorite part of playing football?
Being able to compete at the highest level with the best athletes in the world. In football, you have to earn everything you get. Also, the bond of brotherhood with your teammates is so pure because of the pain and suffering that we go through both physically and mentally. It’s a bond that can’t be broken.
My greatest accomplishment would be after having to sit out my junior year, being able to come back and run for 1000 yards my senior year. After my 1st three games, I only had 103 yards, but I was blessed to be able to finish the year as the 1st Ole Miss RB since Dexter McCluster to rush for 1000 yards.
Do you think other players should consider wearing ankle braces?
I think other football players should wear Ultra Ankle braces for a variety of reasons. The main thing is just the stability and safety for your ankles. We play a sport where ankle injuries are very common, and even the slightest ankle injuries can greatly hamper your performance. In football, your best ability is your availability, and having secure ankles can’t be under appreciated. With the comfort and ease of the Ultra Ankle brace, it’s a no brainer.
