Romell Jordan has a spot in the slot

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Romell Jordan enters his redshirt sophomore season for the Lobos. He came in as a highly decorated running back from Cleveland high school, where he was a 2012 first-team All-State selection and District 1-5A Player of the Year.

He has earned a spot out on the field in 2015 as Romell had a great year at running back last season. On 34 attempts Romell had 3 Touchdowns with over 220 yards rushing. He also put in the work over the spring winning a hard hat spring camp Award.

But the Lobos have so much depth and talent at the Running back position this year, and that would prevent Romell from playing to his and the teams potential.

“You know he’s a combination running back slot, but we really have worked him full time here the last couple of days in the slot position. If we said right now who our 20 best players on offense are, Romell Jordan falls into that category. We need him on the field. We trust him, we like him, he’s a play maker, and he’s tough. He’s going to play a lot of football for us, but we made him a slot back full time right now,” said Head Coach Bob Davie.

The transition hasn’t been easy for the redshirt sophomore, as he only started taking reps in the slot this past spring, but Jordan is willing to do whatever it takes to help his team win.

“Now that I have made the actual transition to slot its difficult learning the different formations and coverage’s, but I was just really into it. Anything that helps the team that’s why I am just ready to do it,” said Romell Jordan.

The Lobos start the 2015 season at home on September 5th, against Mississippi Valley State. Kick off will be at 6 p.m.
