2009-10 Big 12 Championship

Jordan Shipley (born December 23, 1985 in Temple, Texas) is an American football wide receiver who played for the University of Texas. He will be entering the 2010 NFL Draft.


High School

Jordan Shipley holds almost every high school major career receiving record for the state of Texas, including career receptions (252), receiving yards (5,424), and receiving touchdowns (73).[1] He played high school football at Rotan High School in Rotan, Texas as a freshman (2000), and at Burnet High School in Burnet, Texas for three seasons (2001-2003), where his father, Bob Shipley, was the head coach. In 2000, in his first varsity game as a freshman at Rotan High, Shipley totaled 454 all-purpose yards and returned 3 punts for touchdowns.[2]

With current Dallas Cowboys quarterback Stephen McGee, Shipley helped lead the Burnet Bulldogs to back-to-back Class 3A State Championship games in 2002 and 2003.[3] Following his record-setting high school career, Shipley played in the 2004 U.S. Army All-American Bowl with fellow Texas Longhorn Frank Okam and another fellow Texan, current Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson.



2008 season

Shipley had a stand-out game in the 2008 Texas vs. Oklahoma football game against the #1 ranked Oklahoma Sooners. He returned a kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown; it was the longest kickoff return in the 103-year history of the Red River Shootout. He also caught a touchdown pass. The Longhorns won 45–35.[4]

On October 25, 2008, Shipley set a Texas Longhorn record for receptions, catching 15 passes for 168 yards as #1 Texas defeated #6 Oklahoma State 28-24.[5]

Shipley was a senior in 2008, but filed paperwork with the NCAA to request an extra year of eligibility to make up for games missed due to injuries. On December 22, 2008 the NCAA granted Shipley's hardship request for a sixth season of eligibility.[6]

He made the All-Big 12 second team after the 2008 regular season.[7]

Following the 2008 season, Shipley underwent shoulder surgery for what he stated was "an injury I aggravated a couple of times during the year, but was able to play through. I worked hard to rehab it and kept playing. But now that I have time, I got it cleaned up and can get back to full strength for next season."[8]

2009-2010 season

Shipley proved to be a vital member of the 2009 Texas Longhorn football team, including scoring a touchdown off of a Texas Tech punt in the Longhorns' 34-24 victory. On November 7, 2009, Shipley caught 11 passes for a school record 273 yards during a home game against the University of Central Florida Knights. Shipley's play during the season helped lead Texas to the 2009 Big 12 Championship Game against Nebraska. He caught 7 passes for 71 yards in the 13-12 win and helped Texas earn a spot in the 2010 BCS National Championship Game. Shipley caught 2 touchdowns passes during the BCS National Championship Game, but Texas lost to #1 ranked Alabama 37-21.
