2008 Ivy League Player of the Year

2008 USILA Second Team All-American

2008 New England Player of the Year
A year ago, the coaching staff called Jordan the best goalie in the country few had heard of. Now, everyone knows his name. He followed up a strong 2007 with a simply superb 2008. While the game of lacrosse is surely a team sport, there were times Jordan literally put the team on his shoulders and was recognized nationally (2nd team All-American) and in the conference (Ivy League Player of the Year). He continues to represent the quintessential goalie: outstanding stopper, calm and poised no matter the scenario, and a tireless student in his preparatory work for each opponent with Coach Errol Wilson. ..2008: Ivy League Player of the Year...USILA Second Team All-American...First Team All-Ivy and All-New England...Finalist for the Tewaarton Award as the nation's top player...New England Player of the Year...Led the nation in save percentage (.674), and ranked second in the nation with a 6.43 goals against average...Played 820:59 of a possible 840 minutes...Made 19 saves in Brown's win over Penn and 17 saves in a win over Dartmouth...Also registered 16 saves in victory over Delaware...Three-time Ivy League Player of the Week...2007: All New England and All-Ivy selection...Led the Ivy League in saves per game (13.0)...Ranked second nationally in save percentage (.621)...Made a career high 21 saves against Dartmouth, including four in overtime, in a four-overtime game...Registered 19 saves vs. Vermont, 18 saves vs. UMBC and 17 saves against Penn...2006: Earned playing time in three games, making two saves, while allowing no goals...Secondary School Background: A graduate of The Bullis School where he lettered in lacrosse (4) and ice hockey (4)...Lacrosse team captain as a senior and three-time ice hockey captain...Named Bullis School Athlete of the Year as a senior...Washington Post second team All-Met selection in lacrosse...Two-time All-Met selection in ice hockey...Two-time lacrosse team MVP...National Honor Society member...Earned the Principal's Award...Personal: The son of Glen and Michele Burke of Potomac...Has two brothers, Steven and Brandon...
