He was the only receiver, for either team, with 100-plus receiving yards in the 24-17 victory over Trinity, as he tallied 139 yards. Jordan also had a 45-yard touchdown and in addition to his receiving performance, had multiple key blocks, including one on Jamaal Hamilton’s 60-yard touchdown early in the third quarter.
