Campus’ Grayson Jordan – Athlete Spotlight Presented By Shelter Insurance, Rachel Janes

By Hayden Swope

Campus’ Grayson Jordan had a standout season last year, and he was only a sophomore. With 31 tackles and three running touchdowns, Jordan is hoping to add on to those accolades.

“During the offseason I tried to work on my speed and increase my muscle mass,” Jordan said. “Along with the physical improvements, I tried to focus on the mentality I need on the field to know how to cover my space on the field and focus on getting possession of the ball back in our team’s hands. The biggest weakness I worked on was my lateral quickness because I knew I could be even faster if I improved that footwork.”

While he hopes the strengths are noticed, a big goal of Jordan’s is to be the best leader he can be for the Colts. 

“A goal I am focused on this season is becoming noticed, not just for my physical skills but for being a dedicated teammate that can be counted on to build up others around me,” Jordan said. “Whether it be on offense or defense, a particular stat that I want to show on is interceptions and tackles.”

The leadership goes beyond the field however, as Jordan is involved with other activities throughout the year.  

“I play league basketball year round except for football season,” Jordan said. “I dedicate time each week at church to mentor fifth grade boys and focus on being a positive influence as their small group leader. I have volunteered in the kids ministry for the last three years and I really enjoy watching kids learn about God.”

“My plan after high school is to attend college or a junior college and play football, or attend a trade school to learn how to be a construction safety coordinator,” Jordan said.
