Jordy Ray Nelson (born May 31, 1985) is a former American football wide receiver. He played college football at Kansas State, where he received All-America honors, and was drafted by the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL) in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft. During his tenure in Green Bay, he was regarded by sports analysts as one of the elite wide receivers in the NFL, and won Super Bowl XLV with the team over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2010 season.[1][2][3][4][5] After spending 10 seasons in Green Bay, he played one year with the Oakland Raiders before announcing his retirement.

Early life

Nelson was born in Manhattan, Kansas, to Alan and Kim Nelson, farmers who lived in Riley and had season tickets to Kansas State football games. The Nelson farm, established by his great-great-grandfather who immigrated from Sweden, has been in the family for four generations.[6]

Nelson attended Riley County High School in Riley, Kansas, and played football for the Falcons. During his senior year playing quarterback, he completed 62 percent of his passes for 1,029 yards and eight touchdowns. Nelson also rushed for 1,572 yards, averaging 9.8 yards per carry with 25 touchdowns. He was named Flint Hills Player of the Year by the Manhattan Mercury.[7] In 2003, he played in the Kansas Shrine Bowl.[8] In addition to football, he was an all-state basketball player, averaging 17.2 points per game his senior year.[9]

Nelson was an outstanding track and field athlete and won a national AAU championship in the 400 meters as a 10-year-old. In 2003, his senior year at Riley County High School, he won the state titles in Class 3A in the 100 meters, with a time of 10.63 seconds; 200 meters, with a time of 21.64 seconds; 400 meters, with a time of 48.79; and long jump, with a leap of 7.00 meters.[10]

College career

Nelson attended Kansas State University, where he played for coach Bill Snyder's Wildcats football team from 2003 through 2005.[11][12][13] When Snyder retired after the 2005 season,[14] Nelson remained with Kansas State and played the rest of his college career (2006[15] and 2007[16]) under Ron Prince.[17]

2003–2004 seasons

Nelson began his college career as a walk-on at Kansas State and took his redshirt year as a member of the Wildcats' 2003 Big 12 Championship team.[18]

For 2004, Nelson was set to play defensive back, but during spring practice following his first year, Snyder moved him to the wide receiver position. He did not record any meaningful statistics in the Wildcats' 4–7 season in 2004.[19][20]

2005 season

In the Wildcats' season opener against FIU, Nelson had four receptions for 36 yards and caught his first career collegiate touchdown, an eight-yard pass from quarterback Allen Webb, in the fourth quarter of the 35–21 victory.[21] Including the season opener, Nelson caught a touchdown in seven straight games that he appeared in.[22] In that seven-game stretch, Nelson's best performance came against Oklahoma in a 43–21 loss where he had three receptions for 107 yards and a touchdown, which was a 73-yard reception from Webb.[23][24] Kansas State struggled down the stretch of the season and did not make a bowl game with a 5–6 record.[25] In the final game of the season, Nelson had seven receptions for 74 yards and a touchdown in a 36–28 victory over Missouri.[26]

During his sophomore season, Nelson caught 45 passes for 669 yards and eight touchdowns.[27] He led the team in all major receiving categories.[28]

2006 season

In his junior season, Nelson was listed on the Biletnikoff Award watchlist, which is an award for the most outstanding receiver in college football. Injuries kept him off the field most of his junior year, leading to a disappointing junior season, in which he caught only 39 passes for one touchdown.[29]

Nelson did have some highlights in the 2006 season despite not getting to play as much. In the season opener against Illinois State, Nelson had four receptions for 62 yards in the narrow 24–23 victory.[30] On November 4, against Colorado, Nelson turned in his best effort of the season with five receptions for 117 yards and a touchdown in the 34–21 victory.[31] One week later, against the #4 Texas Longhorns, Nelson had a quiet day with only three receptions for 15 yards, but he threw a successful pass for 28 yards in the upset 45–42 victory.[32] The Wildcats qualified for the Texas Bowl with a 7–5 record.

In addition, he threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to running back Leon Patton in the third quarter of the 23–13 loss.[36] Two weeks later, against Missouri State, he had a great performance with 15 receptions for 209 yards and a touchdown in the 61–10 victory. For the second time in his senior season, he threw a touchdown pass, which was a 24-yard pass to wide receiver Deon Murphy.[37] Two weeks later, against #7 Texas, Nelson had 12 receptions for 116 yards and a touchdown in the 41–21 victory. In addition, he had an 89-yard punt return touchdown.[38] The next week, against Kansas, Nelson had another great outing with 10 receptions for 137 yards and a touchdown in the 30–24 loss.[39] After the 47–20 victory over Colorado, Nelson put together a string of six consecutive games with a receiving touchdown to end the season.[40] On October 20, against Oklahoma State, Nelson had 12 receptions for 176 yards and three touchdowns in the 41–39 loss.[41] Against the Baylor Bears, Nelson had eight receptions for 105 yards and a touchdown. In addition, he had a 92-yard punt return touchdown in the 51–13 victory.[42] Against Iowa State on November 3, Nelson had 14 receptions for 214 yards and touchdown in the 31–20 loss.[43] In the following game against Nebraska, Nelson had nine receptions for 125 yards and a touchdown in the 73–31 loss.[44] Against #6 Missouri the next week, he had eight receptions for 94 yards and a touchdown in the 49–32 loss.[45] Against Fresno State, Nelson had 15 receptions for 165 yards and a touchdown in the 45–29 loss.[46] The game against Fresno State was the last game of Nelson's college career as it knocked Kansas State out of bowl eligibility.[47]

Nelson earned consensus All-American honors and was a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award after catching 122 passes for 1,606 yards and 11 touchdowns.[48] Nelson also showed his versatility by throwing two touchdown passes and returning two punts for touchdowns.[49] At the time his collegiate career ended, he was second in school history in receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns to Kevin Lockett.[50]

Personal life

Nelson married his longtime girlfriend, Emily (née Rothlisberger), in 2007, after proposing during a family vacation to Cancun. Emily played basketball at Bethel College in Kansas.[199] The couple have two sons, Royal and Brooks,[200] and an adopted daughter, Adda Jo.[201]

On August 20, 2015, Nelson's alma mater, Kansas State, renamed their football team's locker room after him when Nelson donated an undisclosed amount to renovate their athletic facilities.[202]

After the end of an NFL season, Nelson would return to his family farm in Riley, Kansas. Though he would be paid over $56 million dollars as a player,[203] Nelson put in up to 12 hours a day of heavy farm work including driving a wheat-cutting combine and rounding up the family's 1,000-cow herd. Nelson said that he identifies more as a farmer than as a football player.[204][205] His parents are local restaurant owners in Leonardville, Kansas.[206]

On December 13, 2019, Nelson was named as a 2020 inductee for the Wisconsin Sports Hall of Fame.[207]
