[Since this interview, Jordan has attended July camps at Southern Miss, LSU and Mississippi State. He is deeply involved with his church's youth group, a group that goes on summer missions to help those that are less fortunate. This summer he helped build a castle in Scotland that will be used to house battered and abused unwed mothers. Last summer he traveled to New Orleans, helping to build a projects house. The summer before that he worked in a hospital in Honduras. Because of these mission trips, he misses the June football camps.- Gene]
