Jordan Bodenheimer is a senior at St Paul's in Covington, he is a key member of a solid defense, and a all-state candidate.Saturday,Jordan joined his parents Kirk and Debbie Bodenheimer on a recruiting visit to Lafayette to watch the Ragin' Cajuns play against the Red Wolves of Arkansas State.
"I loved it," said Jordan. "It was awesome."
Kirk enjoyed the experience as well.
"I enjoyed the heck out of it," admitted Kirk. "We were up close to the game, the players and the coaches. Jordan really enjoyed it; he had a lot of fun. He was obviously excited about everything, he enjoyed the entire visit."
"Jordan couldn't believe all of the people tailgating," Debbie added. "It was really great for Jordan, it was good for him to get out and see something like that.
Jordan gives a lot of credit to his old man for his performances on the field.
"Dad was a good coach for me in little league because he always let me know when I was right and when I was wrong," explained Jordan. "He was always straight up with me. At first I didn't know what to do. But, after a couple of years I learned what to do and what NOT to do to aggravate him. He taught me everything I know now."
AS a prospect, Jordan's strengths are his abilities to tackle and stop the run. He has a nose for the football and always seems to fill the holes. He plans to major in Business and has drawn interest from Louisiana, ULM, TCU, and SMU.
The Bodenheimers know what they are doing.
Jordan never felt sure of his ability," said Debbie. "But he talks a lot to (UL Coach) Wingerter, and that has really improved his confidence a lot. You can see it."
Jordan has scored an 18 on the ACT earlier this year, but plans to retake the test to raise his score.
