ALTER EGOS Jaren Jordan Auto Body repair Jaren Jordan is one reason Charlottesville’s football team is off to a 4-1 start and is moving the ball essentially at will on offense. The junior and his fellow offensive linemen clear the way for players like Sabias Folley and Sam Neale who are piling up yardage on the ground. Jordan is one of the players grinding it out so the Black Knights can keep picking up wins and pushing forward. Jordan is also grinding it out in CATEC’s Auto Body Repair. That teamwork he’s been employing on the offensive line also helps when he’s in the classroom at CATEC changing oil or repairing dents or learning repair engines or doors. “I had the chance to do it this year and I like to work on cars,” Jordan said. “If you do something by yourself you won’t know that something is messed up.” Jordan has been learning a great deal in the classroom all while helping the Black Knights put together one of their best starts in years. That’s a pretty good start to the fall for the junior.
