Know Your Dash - Jordan Jackson

Nebraska Media Relations

Jordan Jackson was drafted number 28th over all by the Houston Dash.

Jordan Jackson started her career playing club soccer for KCFC Alliance Jazz for four years. She helped the team to win the Score at the Shore tournament in 2007. She was a four year starter at Blue Valley West High School leading the team to a 61-11-3 record. The midfielder was named the Kansas Gatorade Player of the Year as both a junior and a senior.

Post-high school Jackson attended Nebraska starting 14 of 20 games as a freshman in 2009. She scored 5 goals on the season as well as 3 assists playing at forward. She scored a brace against against South Dakota just one week after scoring her first goal for the team against North Dakota. She built on a wonderful freshman year by having 12 goals and 9 assists with 33 points as a sophomore. She was named to the 2010 All-Big 12 first team as well as the NSCAA All-Central Region third team. Her biggest points game came against Texas Tech in a 5-4 victory where she scored 2 goals and an assist. As a junior she netted 8 goals and 6 assists opening her scoring account against UNC in the teams opener. The 2012 season Jackson suffered a knee injury and was forced to take a medical redshirt. But in the two games she was able to play that season she scored a goal and 1 assist.

Returning in 2013, Jackson started every match scoring 9 goals and 12 assists. She had three game winning goals and averaged over 85 minutes per game. She was the Big 10 Midfielder of the Year and selected for the NSCAA Scholar All-America Third team. Jackson was the Big 10 Offensive Player of the Week for Oct 14. She was also named to the Big 10 All-Tournament team and the Kansas Invitational All-Tournament team. She ended her career 10th on the all time scoring list at Nebraska. At the end of the season she was ranked #46 nationally by Top Drawer Soccer and #8 in the Big 10.

She has had limited time with the national team getting her first call up to train with the U-20s in 2009. She was a part of the team that won the CONCACAF U-20 Women's Championships in Guatemala. In February 2010 she played in a tournament in Spain as a left back for the team. She played in 14 matches in 2010 before the U-20 Women's World Cup.

The left footed Jackson always seemed good for a game winning goal in college something the Dash hope will help them going forward. She has the ability to play all over the field bringing more versatility to the team with amazing ability as an attacking player.
