FameRank: 6

"Henry Wendell Jordan" was an American football defensive tackle who played for two teams, the Green Bay Packers and the Cleveland Browns, during his thirteen-year National Football League career. He played in the NFL from 1957 to 1969.

Jordan attended Warwick High School (Newport News)/Warwick High School in Newport News, Virginia. He played college football at the University of Virginia, where he was the captain of the football team as a senior. He was also a runner-up in the 1957 NCAA wrestling championships. He was a member of the Beta Chapter of Sigma Nu fraternity at UVA. Jordan was drafted in the fifth round of the 1957 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns, who traded him two years later to the Green Bay Packers for a fourth round draft choice. At Green Bay, Jordan was elected to four Pro Bowls (1960, 1961 1963 and 1966), and he was the Pro Bowl MVP in 1961. Jordan was All-NFL six times, and he was a defensive leader on a Green Bay Packers team that played in six NFL title games and won the first two Super Bowls.

Jordan retired after an injury-filled 1969 season. He went to Milwaukee to create and oversee Summerfest.

We are very excited to be a growing part of the California community. We are creating new jobs and helping working families to save money, and that's worth celebrating with Californians who have continued to be a part of that effort.

I think it's very unfortunate for him and the state. Obviously, I'm his opponent and I don't want to see him do well.

Seems like there was one, but it's been a long, long time ago, ... I'm 69 now and I've lived here since I was 5 and I just don't remember one.

We might have a couple more come back, ... We're going to build the department again. It's going to be a good department, it will just take a little while.
