This year is Jordan Schmidt’s second year playing the sport.

He played last fall for his high school team, the Bluevale Knights of the Waterloo County Secondary School Athletic Association (WCSSAA). In the spring he played in the Ontario Football Conference (OFC) with the junior varsity Twin Cities Predators.

In the past, Jordan has attended a number of camps with the Predators, including an All-Pro camp with CFL players such as Ricky Foley and Chad Owens.

Moreover, the Knights standout  spent his summer attending a lineman training camp with coach Josh Alexander, as well as attended a high school camp at the University of Waterloo.

During his time at the camps, Jordan was told that he is very coachable, has quick feet and has CIS athletic potential.

In the coming weeks, the Knights standout is focused on achieving a key objective focused around the Ontario Prospect Challenge (OPC).

“My main goal for the Ontario Prospect Challenge (OPC) is to simply make the team,” said Jordan. “I’m also looking forward to the experience and learning from new coaches, as well as meeting new players.”

The Knights standout, who also plays defensive end, has two role models.

The first is Ray Lewis because he is an all around outstanding linebacker and Jordan strives to be as good as he is.

The other is JJ Watt because he is an amazing defensive end and he swats a lot of balls down out of the air, which is a skill the Knight is working on.

“Having played basketball helps me with that,” explained Jordan, whose main sport was basketball until he discovered football.  “Football is a great stress reliever for me and it’s just a fun sport.”
