Born in Houston, TX Jordan attended Tomball High School where he exceled as a 3 sport athlete in football, basketball and Track. After a successful HS career, breaking majority of the school's basketball and receiving accolades, Jordan decided to commit to the University of Texas at El Paso. At UTEP, under coach Guy Holliday, Jordan was able to make a name for himself through his work ethic and play on the field. After a coaching change at UTEP, Jordan decided to transfer to BYU for his senior year. Although Jordan had a successful college career and impressed scouts at his college pro day, he went undrafted and was picked up by the Minnesota Vikings. In his 4 years in the NFL Jordan led 2 separate teams in pre-season catches, receiving yards, and receiving TDs. The Cleveland Browns activated Jordan to the active roster in week 3 where he graded out as the top wr and made a catch that would go down as a top 10 catch for that NFL season. Unfortunately the next week Jordan tore his hamstring, essentially derailing his career.
Coming from a home without a father, Jordan always had a dream to create a facility where kids of all ages could go to work on their craft and learn from role models that wanted to see them succeed. His goal was to create a safe place where an athlete could go to have everything they needed to chase their dreams. This is why OYD's mission is to provide tools and services that will help every athlete on the field, in the weight room, in the film room, and with recovery. Jordan hopes to expand into more non-profit work and free camps to give back to the community. "In the end I want to be able to provide every athlete, that wants to get better, a place where they can improve and learn. There are way too many great athletes and people that don't achieve their dreams because they never had support. I want OYD to be that support system!"
