Jordy Nelson down on the farm

Jordy Nelson may have put down roots in Green Bay, Wisconsin (his wife, Emily, works at a local public elementary school, too) but farming and the rural countryside is in this guy's blood. Born in 1985 to Alan and Kim Nelson, Jordy was brought up on a farm in the heart of Kansas, USA. He spent his youth helping his parents, attending Kansas State football games, and perfecting his sprinting skills. At the age of 10, little Jordy Nelson won the national AAU championship in the 400 meter dash! A few years later, he set the school records in the 100 and 200 meter dash and was all-state in basketball. Farm boy athlete!

After playing college football at Kansas, Jordy Nelson was drafted to the Green Bay Packers and he quickly gained notice from the staff and fellow players. In 2008, Jordy Nelson made a name for himself as the only rookie in Green Bay Packers history to tally over 30 catches and one 45 yard kick return.

When he's not tearing up the field with his crazy speed, he likes to listen to country music and hang out with his parents on the farm. In fact, Mr. and Mrs. Nelson have expanded beyond their farming enterprise into the dining industry. Jordy and his wife like to grab some grub at his parent's restaurant, Nelson's Landing, established in 2007.

They offer pan friend chicken, Mexican fiestas, and everything in between. The 87 cent beer every Monday doesn't sound too bad, either. And perhaps during the off-season you'll see Jordy Nelson pull up for a hot meal after a long day working on the farm. Yee haw!!!!

  4. We are so proud of our native Kansan who scored the first TD of Super Bowl XLV.

  5. Jordy Nelson had nine catches for 140 yards and a touchdown. His TD was the margin of victory. I would say he was a close runner up to Aaron Rodgers for Super Bowl MVP.

  7. Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so
    I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any points for beginner blog writers? I'd certainly
    appreciate it.
