THOMSON, Ga. -- Running back Chris Jordan (Thomson, Ga./Thomson) was not exactly on the radar of a lot of schools going into this season. In fact, he had no offers and was not hearing from any schools except for a few random bits of mail from Georgia and Georgia Tech. His coach, Milan Turner, understood the lack of interest but knew that would change once the season began.

Radi Nabulsi/ESPN.comThomson (Ga.) coach Milan Turner says the way his team distributes the ball holds Chris Jordan's stats down.
“We are expecting great things from him this year,” Turner said. “He just got better and better last season as the year went on. He has turned into big-time back but he just didn’t have the numbers to show for it.”

He does now. Through three games, Jordan has 544 yards and five touchdowns. On Sept. 7 against Lakeside (Ga.), Jordan piled up 328 yards on 25 carries. On Friday, against one of the top defenses in the Peach State, St. Pius X, Jordan took his first handoff 58 yards for a touchdown on his way to a 130-yard night.
