Jordan was born and raised in Frisco, Texas, where she attended Frisco High School. She played soccer and ran cross country through the school. She was a four-year letter winner as a goalie for soccer as well as earning Captain and Honorable Mention in her senior year. In her high school years, she didn’t pick up a stick until just before her junior year. Frisco hadn’t solidified their team yet, so she played as an attacker for Plano Premier. In her junior year, the team claimed the title of runners-up at State. By her senior year, Jordan was named Captain of her lacrosse team in addition to her soccer team and earned Academic All State.

Jordan recently graduated from Southwestern University (Georgetown, TX) with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and Paideia Distinction. She began her lacrosse career as an attacker for the Pirates, but was moved into the cage her sophomore year due to injuries to both current goalies. She finished her career as the starting and sole goalie of the program. She was one of three inaugural captains in the Pirates’ fourth established season. She led the team to 7-9, 8-8, and 7-7 seasons in her time in the cage. She is the only Southwestern goalie to have also scored goals. In her time at Southwestern, she achieved the following awards: Director of Athletics Academic Excellence Award (Fall ’15, Spring ’16, Fall ’16, Spring ’17), Dean’s List (Fall ’15, Spring ’16, Fall ’16, Spring ’17), Independent Teams Academic Honor Roll (Spring ’17), Chi Alpha Sigma (Spring ’17), Pirate Anchor Award Nominee (Spring ’17), IWLCA Academic Honor Roll (Spring ’17).

Since graduation, Jordan has been enjoying some time off. She spends an abundant amount of time volunteering for and maintaining leadership roles in her church, Genesis Metro. She upholds leadership roles in the children’s ministry, youth ministry, and college ministry. When she’s not on the field or at church, she can be found in a number of places working on what comes next!

High School Age Level Coordinator

Despite being an alumna of the University of Virginia, a perennial lacrosse powerhouse, and her father-in-law having played in college, Amy never saw a lacrosse game until her son first picked up a stick as a kindergartener seven years ago.  Since that time, all three of her kids have gotten very involved with the sport on some level.  Amy’s two daughters currently play for Frisco Fury with her oldest also playing for a travel club.

Between lacrosse, club soccer, academy basketball, high school athletics and all sports in between, Amy has pretty much seen it all in North Texas youth sports.  In the lacrosse world, her son and eldest daughter combined have played for a private school, two other town programs, and four different travel teams.  Amy is thrilled to be able to use that past experience to help support Frisco Fury's High School teams, coaches and families.
