Brother Martin running back rides 7 TD game into national spotlight

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Last week in Mississippi, running back Bruce Jordan-Swilling racked up video-game-like numbers in only one half of play. He scored seven touchdowns for Brother Martin, accumulating 344 yards on 19 carries. The week before Jordan-Swilling scored five touchdowns. Record numbers that are sure to continue if he stays focused.

"He's maturing as a person and a football player. If he continues to mature, and take coaching the way he has, we've got some great things ahead of us. It was only a half of a game. There's going to be some games he plays all four quarters, really excited to see that," said Brother Martin Head Coach Mark Bonis.

Scoring 12 touchdowns in only six quarters of play is quite a stat line for Jordan-Swilling. It has some comparing him to another Catholic League legend. 

"Obviously Leonard Fournette is one of the best running backs to come out of the state. He's a tremendous running back at the collegiate level. Right now it's only week two of Bruce's junior year. If he continues to mature the way we think he can. Continues to take coaching constructively, the skies the limit for him. He has the potential to be one of the best running backs out of the state of Louisiana," Bonis said.

"Yeah it's definitely a good comparison," said Bruce Jordan-Swilling. "When he graduated he was the number one player in the nation. So why wouldn't you want to be compared to the number one player in the nation? That's how I look at it."

He holds official scholarship offers from LSU, Oklahoma, Miami and UCLA among others. If these performances continue, more schools will be in the mix when it becomes decision time.

"Not that many kids get this much exposure. It's something you have to deal with. I like it. I like when people talk about me," Jordan-Swilling said.
