No More Football for Ridgefield Tommy Jordan

Tommy Jordan

We’ve been following the story of 2011 RHS grad, Tommy Jordan, who was recruited by the Florida Gators as a freshman offensive lineman and then redshirted this year due to a shoulder injury.

Jordan never stepped on the field for the Gators this season due to nagging shoulder problems. We just learned from his mom, Michele, that he was told he could never play football again. “He experienced a lot of shoulder pain this past summer and an MRI showed that his shoulder had popped out- it’s literally bone on bone,” she explained. “The doctors told him that he will need a shoulder replacement sometime down the road but they hope he will have 90% use of his shoulder,” she added.

“It’s devastating, but if this is the worst news a parent gets about their child, we’re just fine,” admits Michele.

According to The Gators, Jordan has applied for a medical exception to remain on scholarship but no longer play football.

“His team has been very supportive,” said Michele.

We have a call in to Tommy Jordan and will update this story after we hear from him.
