Richie Jordan was born in Bangor, Michigan and graduated from Fennville High School. Richie is considered by many to be the greatest high school student-athlete in Michigan history earning the nickname the ”Fennville Flash” and is one of only a few Michigan athletes to be inducted into the National High School Sports Hall of Fame. He was a four-sport star earning an incredible 16 letters; playing halfback in football and earning All-State honors, his basketball exploits are even more legendary as he averaged over 44 points per game as a senior, finishing his career with 2,210 points, he was a baseball standout batting an incredible .550 in his last year, and he led his track team to a third-place finish in the state meet. He went on to Michigan State playing basketball for two years before focusing just on baseball. After graduation, he had a tryout with the Pittsburgh Pirates before an injury ended his career. Richie Jordan was inducted the Michigan Sports Hall of Fame in 2012.
