Interview With Former Pro Football Player and Children's Book Author, Jordan Sullen

Jordan enjoyed a 3 and a half year career of professional football. He spent time in the NFL with the Broncos, Steelers, Bears and Panthers, and in the CFL with the Tiger-Cats and Argos. He was an athletic kid, but football and track became his 2 major sports. His speed earned him State championships as he excelled in hurdles and 200m. As a top athlete, he garnered interest from a few schools like Georgia Tech, but he ultimately decided to stay close to home and attend Tulane University. He was a team captain his Senior season, and his leadership and speed got him a shot in the NFL. A memorable moment for him was when Peyton Manning came up to him to introduce himself during training camp. Peyton knew who he was due to his ties to New Orleans. He wasn't able to get an interception off of him, but he does remember intercepting Ben Roethlisberger while with the Steelers. After his career ended, he got involved in health and wellness. He does a lot with the increasingly popular cryotherapy. He also wrote 2 books recently. He has always had an artistic side, and was able to explore his talents by writing and illustrating the books. It is a passion of his and he is looking to expand his writing in the future. For more information on Jordan and what he's involved with, follow the links below.
