Jordan Zacher first started competing on the gridiron at the Atom level with the Calgary Stampeders, and was also with them during Peewee and Bantam.

“After Bantam I played high school football with the St. Mary’s Saints,” he says. “In Grade 10 I was awarded Defensive MVP, in Grade 11 I received Coaches Choice Award and in Grade 12 I was awarded Defensive MVP and was selected to the Division 2 All-Star Team.”

Jordan has fond memories of a key interception that he made in a game last season.

“The highlight of last season was in our regular season game against William Aberhart when I caught my second interception of the year,” Jordan says. “This is my favourite moment because our team got off to a slow start and the game was closer than we thought. I reached out for the ball and caught it, giving the offence the ball back.”

When it comes to the recruitment process, it has been quiet, as he hasn’t talked to any scouts yet. However, a couple CIS schools have accepted Jordan, but he’s weighing his options.

“I have been accepted into University of Calgary and University of Alberta,” he says. “However, I have not decided on which university I will be attending. I am visiting the University of Alberta campus over spring break (March 28-April 1). I have no NCAA offers.”

Jordan has always had support systems in his life that have helped him progress throughout the years.

“The most influential people in my life are my family, they are always there supporting me,” Jordan says. “In football, past coaches have had a resounding impact on my life, not only helping me develop as an athlete, but as a person as well.”

His training is connected with an off-season program as part of the St. Mary’s rugby team.

“We train three days a week: Monday, which is a cardio circuit, Wednesday, which is a weight circuit and a Friday morning run,” he says.

Playing rugby will help him improve for next football season.

Jordan is focused just as much on his education as he is on the gridiron. He constantly strives to be the best.

“My future plans are centralized around rehabilitation,” Jordan says. “I am interested in biomedical engineering, physiotherapy or another specialized medical field.”
