Notre Dame football star Jordan Faison is doing something that most college football players wouldn’t even consider in this day and age. Not only is he participating in a second sport, but it’s a physical exhausting sport that has kept him very busy and presumably quite tired just as his first sport’s season wound down.

Not only has Jordan Faison jumped right from Notre Dame football to Notre Dame lacrosse, but he’s done it better than anyone could have dreamed. The freshman Fighting Irish star has scored a goal in every game he’s played. 

He’s scored more than one goal, more than once. In total, he’s got 14 goals in 7 games. And he’s one of the best players on a Notre Dame lacrosse squad that is back in the top spot in the country. A Fighting Irish group that looks more and more like they’re going to win two straight national titles.

On Saturday, Faison helped the Irish over 3rd-ranked Syracuse, 14-12. The win allowed Notre Dame to improve to 6-1 on the season and begin ACC play with a record of 1-0. 

It also seems as though Jordan Faison has managed to blend in nicely with the rest of his team. On Saturday, Pat Kavanagh, Chris Kavanagh and Eric Dobson each finished with three points, and 10 Notre Dame players scored at least one goal in the win. The former Notre Dame football star was one of those 10.

It’s a testament to just how good the Irish are in lacrosse that Faison that his 14 goals are just third on the team. But it needs to be pointed out again that a true freshman, who was suiting up for Notre Dame football through the fall and winter, is now among the lacrosse team’s leaders in scoring.

It wasn’t as though Jordan Faison was fading down the stretch, either. In fact, in the Golden Domers’ final game of the season, the Sun Bowl, the freshman receiver had a career-high 4 catches for 111 yards and a touchdown.

It certainly appears the sky is the limit for this Notre Dame football and Notre Dame lacrosse superstar.
