Jordan began shooting trap for his high school shooting team in 2008. He took quickly to the shotgun sports and has enjoyed tremendous success in both SCTP and high school team events in his home state of Wisconsin as well as on a regional and national stage.
As a member of the Demons High School team, his resume includes:
His individual accomplishments include:
Jordan began shooting International Trap and Double Trap in 2011. That year, he won the gold medal in his age group at the USA Shooting Junior Olympics in Double Trap. He is a two-time member of the USAS Junior Olympic team for Double Trap.
Now a freshman at Michigan’s Hillsdale College, Jordan’s first venture to the ACUI Collegiate National Championships in San Antonio will be a memorable one. After a lackluster start in 5-Stand, International Skeet, and Sporting Clays, Jordan dominated the final three days of competition. He broke 98 of 100 in International Trap on Friday, followed by his first ever 100-straight in American Skeet on Saturday. On the final day of competition, he backed up his skeet score with 100-straight in American Trap.
After three straight days of shoot-offs, Jordan ended up with the bronze medal in American Skeet (432 competitors) and the silver medal in American Trap (469 competitors). He was awarded the High Overall American Combined (Trap and Skeet, 200x200) and the High Overall Trap Combined (American Trap and International Trap, 198x200).
Most important to Jordan was another National Team Championship as he and his Hillsdale Chargers teammates brought home the ACUI Division III Championship for the second time in three years.
“Thanks to Kolar Arms for making the finest shotguns available and to Hillsdale College for giving my teammates and I the opportunity to continue our education at an incredible school while still being able to compete in the clay target sports,” Hintz commented after the event. “Training for next year begins now; or after we catch up in our classes,” he added with a smile.
Jordan shoots a Kolar MAX Low Profile .750 adjustable rib combo with both 30” and 32” over-under barrels featuring a custom stock that he utilizes to shoot in the numerous disciplines that he competes in.
