Bishop Gorman (NV) turns over a lot of talent from the past couple championship seasons, but they still have plenty of returning talent that will challenge for another national title.
Senior tight end Brevin Jordan is one of those returners, and the 6-foot-3, 225-pound Miami (FL) commit is preparing for a huge senior season. For the first time in three seasons, Jordan will be catching passes from a different signal-caller. All-American Tate Martell is on to Ohio State, so Jordan will be looking to mesh with senior UCLA commit Dorian Thompson-Robinson.
Gridiron Circuit's Brianna Lewerke caught up with the talented tight end, getting his thoughts on his upcoming senior campaign.
Bri Lewerke: First question, tell me what you’re most looking forward to this season and what you improved on most in the offseason?
Brevin Jordan: I'm looking forward to the outbreak of Dorian this year. I want everyone to believe the hype. I've improved the most on being a vocal leader and captain to my teammates.
BL: Who would you say has been the biggest influence in your football career thus far? What’s the best advice they’ve given you?
BJ: My momma for sure, she always say "keep god first, keep family close, and be happy." So it's really off the topic of football
BL: Tell me a little bit about what it’s like playing for Bishop Gorman and playing for Kenny Sanchez
BJ: Bishop Gorman is the hardest working school in the country, school wise, football wise it's hard, a lot of dudes can't handle it.
Coach Kenny is easily the most energetic coach there is, dude is scary. He breathes greatness man, he gets all the players hyped, he makes being a player for him fun.. but at the same time it's hell playing for him (laughs)
BL: So you’re not favored to win the national title for the first time in 3 years, do you see that as motivation to prove the doubters wrong?
BJ: It's not motivation, it's who we are. That's what we chase. We focused on Dematha week 1 right now, and then we'll worry about the next opponent. And hopefully at the end of the year we'll be on top
BL: What’re your personal and your team goals for your senior year?
BJ: I never care about my own personal goals I just play ball and hopefully I have decent stats at the end of the year
My team goal is to beat Dematha week 1 and win a natty
BL: You had some big names recruiting you and decided on Miami- what ultimately were the deciding factors in choosing to play for the U and coach Mark Richt
BJ: Just felt like home
BL: Tell me about your team chemistry at Bishop Gorman
BJ: We're brothers. We win together, we run together even party together we do everything together. And only people who are involved with Gorman can understand that
BL: Is there an NFL or College player you look up to or did look up to growing up playing football?
BJ: I like Travis Kelce, Jordan Reed and Delanie Walker because of the run after the catch and athletic abilities
BL: When did you start playing football and when did you know you wanted to pursue it in the long run?
BJ: 5 years old. I didn't know I was just a little kid trying sports and I was pretty good so I stuck with it
BL: Do you know what you playing on studying in college?
BJ: I plan to study marketing, and I want to minor in entrepreneurship
BL: Tell me something people would be surprised to know about you
BJ: I'm Korean and black, and my mom is a stage 3 breast cancer survivor
BL: Wow, good for her. Thats amazing. Last question for ya- where do you see yourself in 5 years?
BJ: I don't know where I see myself, I hope to see myself in the NFL with a beautiful Persian wife and a fat contract
