CSU alum’s NFL connection
Jordan Lane has covered a lot of ground since receiving his CSU athletic training degree in 2017. He’s earned a Master of Science in advanced athletic training from the University of South Carolina, worked with the USC football team and served as a graduate assistant at Benedict College, a Division II HBCU.
Currently, Lane can be found on the sidelines with the Green Bay Packers where he is completing a yearlong athletic training internship. The move from South Carolina to Wisconsin hasn’t been a big adjustment since Lane grew up in Connecticut.
“Green Bay in general has a slower pace than Charleston which I enjoy, and you’ll be hard pressed to find a more supportive community due to its incredible history, including being the only publicly owned, not-for-profit professional team in the U.S.,” said Lane. “The people are just as down-to-earth and as friendly as South Carolina, and I wouldn’t change anything about this experience for the world.”
Most NFL athletic trainers complete two or three yearlong internships before landing a permanent position.
