Louis Jordan - Athlete and Warrior

Louis Jordan - Athlete and Warrior

This is part 1 of the story of Louis Jordan, Texas football, and the Great War of 1914 to 1918. It is a story of patriotism and teamwork, loss and sacrifice. It is about leadership and the cost of war. This episode covers his successful career as a student and athlete with the University of Texas-Austin Longhorn's football team. The next episode will cover the next stage of his life after graduation.

The song at the end is Fight by the great Colton Mathis.

The Texas History Lessons Theme song, Walking Through History, was written and recorded by Derrick McClendon. Listen to his new album, Interstate Daydreamer! Available everywhere you find good music. Thank you Derrick! Twitter: @dmclendonmusic
