Jordon Londo: 2022 Pro Prospect Interview
Name: Jordon Londo
School: Missouri Valley College
What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
I set a couple different goals prior to the season some bigger than others such as, playing the whole season and staying healthy, yes I accomplished the goal of doing so. Another goal was to make hits that made everyone understand that I don’t hit like a typical DB. Of corse getting a Pick six is in every DB’s goal list and I was able to accomplish that as well.
Q: How do you think you took advantage of the extra year of eligibility to increase your chances of going pro?
I believe the covid year really helped because prior to this past season I was playing WR and In my own opinion I feel that defense was going to be the best spot for me at the next level. Me and the coaches came to an agreement where I was to help the team on the defensive side of the ball,special teams and still get some reps at the WR position.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
If you were to ask my coaches and teammates what they think of me it would be something like a physical specimen,great captain and leader, never giving up and playing through the whistle, dependable, and for sure coachable. Those are a few things that players and coaches has ever said to describe me at every school I been at. I am a outgoing person so it’s easy for me to make sure players and coaches are mentally good even outside of football, I try to make it my job to make sure everyone’s mental is good.
Q: When you are studying film, what are the things you focus on to improve your game?
Film is so important and I hope guys in high school are realizing it more prior to getting to the next levels. When I study film the first go around I’ll watch the full game then I start over and watch their scheme and plays and what it is they are trying to do. I ask myself are they run heavy pass heavy RPO or what.I break it down in groups of downs what do they do on first down second down and so on so fourth, along with goal line. Then I see who they are trying to get the ball to,I look at his releases and routes. Is he a good blocker or no I study the opponents key players so I have an understanding what ima face.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
I have gotten this question before during an interview and my answer stays the same! I don’t really know because I do not compare myself to anyone, I’m only trying to outdo whom I was yesterday. I know what I bring to the table I can care less about what anyone else brings I will always continue to work on my craft because I know I can play at the next level and perform.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
Off season it’s heavy training always, trying to get pro days somewhere to show out. All I need is an opportunity and the rest is history. So I just train try and get an opportunity to showcase my talent on someone’s team.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
I say I’m this day in age what is needed more and more is effort, there isn’t enough putting your body on the line for teammates and wins and I understand there is money involved at the pro level but are you playing for the money or the love of the sport and the honest truth is a lot of people will say the money. I just love the game of football and I wanna reward myself that when I first started at the age of 5 that the dream came true of being a professional football player.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL and any other pro leagues?
I’ll leave you with this, giving me a shot you will be so happy and relieved you chose me, I play with effort hear and passion I don’t and I won’t ever give up on a play at practice games special teams what ever it is I am do I will do it 100% and to the best of my ability.I can go on and on about myself but we all know actions speak louder than words. So an opportunity’s all I need, Thank you.
