After an accolade-filled career at Missouri Western, Mike Jordan's playing days continue. He's been selected to play in the East-West Shrine Bowl.

Jordan earned unanimous first team defense All-MIAA honors this year. During the Griffons' deep playoff run in 2012, he was named the All-MIAA freshman of the year.

Jordan finished his career at Missouri Western with the second-most interceptions in program history. He trails Pierre Thomas, who is a Missouri Western Hall of Famer.

Griffons head coach Jerry Partridge said Jordan always had the tools to be a great player.

"He's always been a guy with great ball skills. I wouldn't say he's a crash them, smash them up hitter, but he's physical enough," Partridge said. "Anytime you see a guy progress from kid to man, it's always fun and for the most part they all do it anyway, but he's one of the best players to ever play here."

Partridge adds Jordan also has an offer to play in the NFLPA Bowl.
