Cameron Jordan Named To Senior Bowl Hall Of Fame
MOBILE, Ala. – Former Cal football and current New Orleans Saints' defensive end Cameron Jordan will be inducted into the Senior Bowl Hall of Fame during a ceremony sponsored by Spire at The Grand Hotel Golf Club & Spa in Point Clear, Alabama, on Wednesday, June 23, 2021. Jordan will be inducted as a member of the class of 2021 along with former Miami Dolphins' and Kansas City Chiefs' CB Patrick Surtain, former San Francisco 49ers' LT Joe Staley, former Jacksonville Jaguars' RB Fred Taylor and former Indianapolis Colts' WR Reggie Wayne.
"I had teammates that were older than me at Cal like Tyson Alualu and Alex Mack go to the Senior Bowl and watching those guys ahead of me become first-rounders was proof of how important the Senior Bowl really was," Jordan said after his selection on Thursday. "Getting the invite to the Senior Bowl was checking off the list of being acknowledged as one of the nation's best. When I got to the Senior Bowl, it allowed me to prove myself and eliminate any self-doubt versus the nation's best players. Playing in the Senior Bowl reinforced what I should've already known — that I was fully prepared to go to the NFL."
Jordan is the first Cal player to become a member of the Senior Bowl Hall of Fame and one of 40 all-time to be selected to play in the premiere college football All-Star game.
