Georgia Tech announced that quarterback Matthew Jordan, a redshirt-junior, will be joining this year’s seniors in their celebration on Senior Day this weekend, meaning this will be his final game on the Flats. Paul Johnson announced the news in a news conference today, citing a foot injury that has given Jordan issues for a while now.
Jordan was a solid back-up quarterback in his time at Georgia Tech, with his most notable game coming last year against Virginia Tech where he started in place of an injured Justin Thomas.
Leading the Yellow Jackets against the No. 18 Hokies, Jordan had a phenomenal game, rushing for 121 yards and two touchdowns.
Jordan, who suffers from Type 1 Diabetes, has also served as a role model for younger children who from Diabetes. If you haven’t read that article, I would highly recommend it.
