Former Miner on gold medal-winning team at World Championships

Former Missouri S&T offensive lineman Brandon Jordan, BAdm’09, played this summer on the U.S. national team that won the gold medal at the fourth International Federation of American Football Senior World Championships in Australia.


Jordan was an offensive tackle for the Miners from 2007 to 2009 and was a two-year starter for S&T. He was a starter during the 2008 campaign, when the Miners won the Great Lakes Football Conference championship as part of a record-setting 7-4 season. Missouri S&T posted its highest modern-day total of 408 points during that season.
Team USA won the tournament by defeating Canada 50-7 in the championship game for its third straight title. Prior to that, Team USA defeated Australia 61-0, Germany 48-7 and Mexico 17-7 to reach the championship game.
