I was actually talking about this earlier this week with some friends. I played in high school against Lamont Jordan. It was actually just a preseason game. He went to Suitland high in MD. It just happened my junior year our new coach was his old coach and he managed to schedule a preseason warmup between the two teams.
Needless to say Jordan was the most amazing player I have ever played against. He was bigger than most of the lineman, and faster than everyone on the field. He ran me over a few times, and even when I managed to bring him down once it was only because I was able to trip him up.
Sadly until this year, I never really knew how good he was. Playing against him and seeing his ability and then knowing he was a backup in the NFL made me understand just how special these guys are. Now that Jordan is starting, I have an even better idea.
