Scholar Athlete of the Week
from Eyewitness Sports Online


Student: Levi Jordan
School: Buffalo
Primary Sport: Football

Its his last year with the Bison, and its one Levi Jordan wants to last for a long time. "Expectations are really high, we've worked out butt off since day one. Leadership is the main thing right now."

A season ago Buffalo was bounced in the first round, giving Jordan and company plenty of motivation for 2012. "That should fire us up. To get that first round playoff, instead of losing there just trying to get going."

Jordan is a four year starter at qb, who has plenty of stats to back up his skills. "That's a great thing but i couldn't do it without my front linemen or my wide recievers. Anybody out there i have helping me."

Levi carries a 3.6 GPA, taking his success into the classroom. "The classroom is like the field you have to work to try to get to the top of your class and study hard."

Jordan has led several bison teams into the post-season, and this year, he wants to take them all the way to wheeling. "That's what i'm shooting for trying to get the team there. Its my duty as the quarterback or any position i play to lead them there."
