Teacher Feature

by John Jourdan How well do you know Blountstown’s Head Football Coach? Greg Jordan was born in 1969, in Florala, Alabama. He attended Blountstown High and played J.V football under Coach Billy Jones during his freshmen year. The team went undefeated that year with a 7-0 record. The next three years Coach Jordan started at QB on varsity under Coach David Pitts. After graduating in 1987 from Blountstown High, he moved on to play football at Valdosta State but due to a shoulder injury, his football career ended. Coach Jordan decided to go to Chipola and from there moved on to Florida State University and earned a degree in Physical Education. Besides coaching, he has taught Personal Fitness and Physical Education. Now as head Coach he runs the weightlifting program. I had a chance to ask coach if he ever thought of another career and he said, “I liked Biology in school and like the outdoors so I probably would’ve been a Wildlife Biologist.” Coach’s hobbies are hunting and fishing, but what he loves most is spending time with his lovely wife Amy and their two sons, Tucker and Hunter. He enjoys his favorite college team FSU, but in the past two years has added LSU and Georgia Tech to his list. Blountstown’s very own Ryan Baker and Jonathan Lockhart are attending these colleges on Football Scholarships. He enjoys watching the movie “Remember the Titans” and reading his favorite book Bleachers, by John Grisham. He also enjoys listening to classic rock and country. Greg Jordan is a wonderful coach and the thing he values most from his 13 years of coaching is watching kids from 9th grade grow into young adults in their senior year. “I enjoy being a part of their lives and I hope to instill a motivation in their hearts and minds to someday become leaders.”
