Congdon going Ivy League


0303congdonmug.jpegKicker Jordan Congdon's path has never really gone according to the norm.

Coming out of San Diego's St. Augustine High, Congdon accepted a scholarship to play at Nebraska, where he started for two seasons before transferring to USC as a walkon. After sitting out two years, he kicked for the Trojans in 2009, earning an honorable mention on the Pac-10 All-Academic team and becoming USC's leading score with 77 points with 12 field goals and a perfect 41-for-41 mark on PATs.

Looks like he's not changing his unique ways now, as Congdon, a devout Christian, has been accepted into the Princeton Theological Seminary in New Jersey, where he's set to enroll this fall and pursue a master's degree.


Congratulation, Jordan. What an honor! It is always rewarding to see students like you excel in your academic pursuits.

I hope you saved your cold weather gear. In Lincoln was cold, wait until you get to New Jersey.

Congratulations! Fight On, Jordon!

I'd like to congratulate Jordan but also point out a significant flaw with this article; Princeton Theological Seminary is a wholly separate entity from Princeton University. It is completely incorrect to refer to it as "Ivy League."

Congratulations, Jordan! I am extremely proud and happy for you. Keep in touch.
