Jordan football is coming off its most successful season in school history, and that 2021 campaign started with a thrilling overtime victory at home over Kennedy.

That victory seemed to catapult the Panthers into the season with more confidence, and they’re hoping of they can do the same thing tonight in their season opener at Kennedy. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.


Jordan is healthy and ready to get new coach Jon Nielsen his first victory. Nielsen said he’s expecting a “fun” game to start the year.

The player who gave Jordan trouble in last year’s game was Kennedy receiver Hunter Benton, who had 18 catches for 227 yards and four touchdowns, but he graduated.
