Jordan McNair was supposed to spend this week preparing for Maryland football's road game against the Bowling Green Falcons for what would have been the second game of his sophomore season.
Instead, his family prepares to celebrate their son's 19 years of life at his alma mater's Friday night home opener football game.
McDonogh Football announced it will be honoring their late offensive lineman during a 7 p.m. pregame ceremony at John McDonogh Stadium in Owings Mills, Md.
On Friday, 9/14, @McDonoghSchool will honor Jordan McNair ’17 by retiring his #70 jersey at our game against Malvern Prep. In addition to the 7:00 pm pregame ceremony, @McDonoghFB will wear a #70 helmet sticker this season to honor his legacy. pic.twitter.com/bbWx3ZCShI— McDonogh Football (@McDonoghFB) September 5, 2018
Maryland honored McNair in its own way Sept. 1 on the first offensive play of the game against No. 23 Texas.
The team went on to upset the Longhorns for the second time in as many years.
Interim head coach Matt Canada's team plans to pay tribute to McNair all season long in what has already become one of the most controversial seasons in program history.
