Utah State’s Love is “Numbers” Ready
By Earl Heath, Contributing Sports Writer, Los Angeles News Observer
There is a drive within Jordan Love. From the football field to the classroom where he majors in ‘human movement science.’
The 6-4 220 pound Bakersfield Liberty high graduate likes the numbers. “If I put up numbers we will have a better opportunity to win games,” said the Jr. quarterback.
When love left liberty he threw for more than 4,000 yards and 42 touchdowns. He was a ranked high in Max Preps.
When asked why Utah State? “On my visit I fell in love with the place,” said Love. “Also the people were really nice to me”
Love had a good start to his career after redshirting. In 2017 he played in 12 games starting 6 of them. He completed 129 of 235 passes for 8 TD’s.
In 2018 he set many records including: 32 touchdowns, he threw for over 3,500 yards. He had seven 300 yard games. He threw five touchdowns in games against UNLV and San Jose State. He earned Mountain West Conference Player of the Week honors five times.
A few days ago he was named to the Walter Camp All-American Player of the Year watch list. Walter Camp is America’s oldest All-American Team first started in 1897.
He is one of only 40 players named to the watch list and the only one from the MWC.
He spoke of his high friend and former teammate Krys Barnes now at UCLA.
“We are the best of friends and I am glad to see him and other players from Bakersfield do well while they play in college.”
