An Iowa State University grad will have a front-row seat at this weekend's Super Bowl. Jordan Pierce is an athletic trainer for the New England Patriots.
Pierce graduated from ISU in 2015, where he was worked with the Cyclone football team. He also interned with the Denver Broncos.
“The opportunities I've been fortunate to have and the individuals I have worked with while with the Patriots this season have taught me so much about what it means to truly be a great athletic trainer,” he said. “Every day I am learning something new from someone on the staff. Everything from specific clinical evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation skills to time management, people management, and especially, what great leadership looks like.”
“Being a Cyclone is something I am so proud of,” he said. “I am absolutely certain that without the educational and clinical opportunities I had while at Iowa State, I would not be where I am now — working for a team playing in the Super Bowl.”
