Former Warren County standout Randy Jordan Wednesday was named one of the N.C. High School Athletic Association’s 100 male athletes to remember as part of the association’s centennial celebration.

A special committee including school administrators, coaches and media compiled the list.

Jordan played football at North Carolina before a nine-year NFL career with the Raiders and Jaguars.

The Manson native currently serves as North Carolina’s running backs coach.

The state athletic association highlighted Jordan’s prowess in both football and track at Warren County, where he graduated in 1989.

Jordan still holds the 2-A state record in the 200-meter dash and previously owned the best 100 time. He won six outdoor state titles.

Jordan’s coaching career began with the Oakland Raiders as a special teams assistant in 2003 before a four-year stop as running backs coach for Bill Callahan at Nebraska. He then led the running backs at Texas A&M before joining Larry Fedora’s staff at UNC.
