"So, I got the phone call and I said, 'Yeah, I'd be more than happy to come down.'"
By playing Saturday night, Jordan will complete a North-South Triple Crown. That is, he will have played in the North-South baseball, basketball and football games. He suited up for the South in the all-star games at Hurricane High School on June 2, and will again wear a red jersey when the South basketball all-stars take on the North on Friday night at the South Charleston Community Center.
Jordan averaged 17.1 points for the Bison basketball team as a senior, leading them to the Class A State Tournament.
"It's a great thing and I'm fortunate enough to do it," Jordan said. "I guess the best thing to do is just give God the glory for giving me options to do these things."
Options are things Jordan has plenty of, even as the middle of June approaches after his senior year. He has still not chosen a college to attend in the fall, although he said Monday that the picture is becoming clearer.
He said he intends to continue his football career for as long as possible.
"I've been asked to walk on at WVU, so I think I'm going to go ahead and do that," he said.
For now, Jordan said he'd be happy to end his high school career the way he spent so many of them.
"I like to go out and be a playmaker, you know? Just want to go out and do what I did the rest of my high school career," he said.
Kickoff for the game is at 7 p.m. Saturday.
