So this is pretty cool: former Mizzou defensive end Jordan Harold will now be playing outside linebacker ... for Team USA.
The text (in case the embed is funky):
I am proud to officially announce that I will take place in the IFAF World Championship as USA Team Outside Linebacker that will be held in China, representing University of Missouri, Columbia and the USA AGAIN. This event will host 8 other countries and compete for the gold medal in the sport that I am most passionate about, football!! I would like to extend gratitude to God and to everyone who has helped me throughout this journey that has led to this point. I ask you to continue to support my journey by donating towards our trip. Each player has been asked to raise some money to support our International travel expenses, and any gift will help. USA Football is a 501c3 organization, so your donations can be written off. If you would like to contribute please direct message me or Aleshia Jordan . Stay tuned because this is just a start of an opportunity of a lifetime. It will aid me on my path to the #NFL and it also gives me a tremendous opportunity to represent the USA, Missouri, and Saint Louis!!! #MIZ #USATeam2018 USA Team U.S. National Football Team
Harold was last seen playing the game of his life against Texas in the Texas Bowl. He had 5.5 tackles, 3.5 TFLs, and two sacks against the Longhorns, giving him a total of 10 TFLs among 36.5 tackles in two seasons with the Tigers. And now he gets a pretty cool opportunity to play American football in China.
Yesterday at Rock M
- Whew. In its quest for an NCAA Tourney bid, Mizzou Baseball couldn’t really afford to slip up against Indiana State last night, and thanks to a five-run, game-tying eighth inning from the Sycamores, an easy win turned into a nail-biter. But Mizzou responded with a run in the bottom of the eighth and held on, 8-7. Hooray, perfect midweek record.
- Mizzou Softball met with the media before this weekend’s NCAA regional in Norman. The key quote, made better with well-placed parentheses: “We kicked (butt) in our RPI.”
- Man, I’m not going to lie: Mizzou Baseball’s tourney résumé is, to my eyes, quite a bit stronger than Mizzou Softball’s.
Whether I agree or disagree is irrelevant.. I absolutely LOVE @MizzouBaseball stating their case. Would love to see more schools do this.— Mike Rooney (@Mike_Rooney) May 15, 2018
On that note, 14 Top 50 wins (7th in country) is intriguing.. #ShootYourShot pic.twitter.com/jMMwTgi17d
- Mizzou made the cut-down list for St. Louis star Marcus Washington recently; now we get to see soon about another Trinity Catholic star, OL Ira Henry.
