Jordan calls off remainder of season

Jordan, a Class 4A school in Columbus, won’t finish its season because of limited player availably related to injury and COVID protocols, the Muscogee County School District announced Wednesday.

Jordan had lost games to Pacelli, Randolph-Clay and Columbus and forfeited to Spencer. It had remaining games against Kendrick, Shaw, Carver of Columbus, LaGrange, Hardaway and Troup, all Region 2-4A opponents.

Jordan was 2-7 in 2019 and 0-10 in 2019. Dale Overton, a former Auburn player, had been promoted to head coach this season.

“This decision does not come lightly, but due to COVID-associated protocols and injuries, Jordan does not have the student-athletes available to safely field a football team,” the school system stated in an release.

Jordan is the second football program to cancel its 2021 varsity season after it had started. Midtown of Atlanta played and lost one August game and chose to finish its season as a JV program.
