 Mr. Brian Jordan

Brian attended Milford Mill High School in Milford Mill, MD. After graduating he went on to attend the University of Richmond where he played both football and baseball. He was drafted in the first round by the St Louis Cardinals in the 1988 MLB draft. The following year he was drafted in the 7th round by the Buffalo Bills in the 1989 NFL Draft. Baseball being his first love, he decided not to play for the Bills. But while climbing the ladder in the Cardinals’ minor league organization, Brian played defensive back for the Atlanta Falcons.  He had five interceptions and four sacks in his brief NFL career (1989 to 1991). He led the Atlanta Falcons in tackles and was voted as an alternate to the Pro Bowl team after the 1991 season. In 1992 Jordan ended his Football career when he signed a new contract with the St. Louis Cardinals to play Baseball exclusively. Brian later joined the Atlanta Braves, the team in which he spent most of his career. Jordan currently serves as a TV pre-game analyst for the Atlanta Braves on Braves Live, the official pregame show.  Brian still resides here in Atlanta and is active in the community with the Brian Jordan Foundation, and has authored the semi-autobiographical children’s book, ” I Told You I Can Play”.  We are excited to have someone who played both Football and Baseball at the highest levels share his message with us.
