Name: Major Jordan
School: Lafayette College
What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
As always the team sets the goal to win the league title. We fell short, but through the process of the season, I was able to develop my play, become a better student of the game, and ultimately bounce back from an injury.
Q: How do you think you took advantage of the extra year of eligibility to increase your chances of going pro?
Any chance to play again is an opportunity to prove your worth, it helped solidify any doubts some may have about me. Due to an injury, I played with a club and proved to be a reliable and successful player despite being at a disadvantage.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
A tough, dedicated, and intelligent player. I’m always trying to find ways to improve my game on the field and off the field. I am always trying to take advantage of film study to know my opponent and have the mental advantage on the field.
Q: When you are studying film, what are the things you focus on to improve your game?
Splits of receivers, what type of route concepts they like out of certain formations. What are there fundamental formations and what are some of the spin-offs that they usually do not typically do. That gives a huge advantage of what play they are running.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
Knowledge of the game, technique, and trust to do my job every play.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
Prepare like always. Lifting, running, and most importantly working on my craft to become the best player I could be because what really matters is how you play.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
Dedication to win and most importantly trust. When you can trust the person next to you to do your job at the highest level that’s when you see a different type of player and team. That mentality is something I bring on and off the field to inspire everyone to be great and trust the man next to you.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL and any other pro leagues?
Winning comes at the expense of sacrifice. I sacrifice everyday to be the best I can be. Winning teams have guys that do their job and do it at a high level. I pride myself and play on those qualities!
