Jordan Joseph Payton – Cleveland Browns
From Santa Monica, California, Jordan Payton was a standout student-athlete at the University of California Los Angeles. Stemming from Oaks Christian High School, the California native went on to pioneer the resurgence of UCLA Football. Leaving as UCLA’s All-Time leading pass catcher and the only receiver to catch over 200 passes, Payton cemented his legacy in each of this last two seasons, while giving back to the community that he so dearly loves. In the 2016 draft, Payton was selected by the Cleveland Browns and in fall of 2016, he became one of few young players to sit on the Gridiron Greats Assistant Fund’s Advisory Board. “I am extremely passionate about advancing the NFL for not only the current players but all of the Greats that paved the way for this amazing game before us. Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund, is a trailblazing organization that tackles a lot of unfulfilled areas for our Greats post career and continues to find avenues to bridge the gaps for player longevity, health and overall wellbeing. I am ecstatic to be on the Advisory Board as young player, helping them carve out new opportunities and being an advocate for creating awareness.” Jordan looks to leave his mark on an historic league as both an outstanding player and respected philanthropist.
