Bruce Jordan-Swilling, son of five-time Pro Bowl linebacker Pat Swilling, made his mark on the other side of the ball Friday.

Jordan-Swilling, who is also a four-star linebacker prospect, ran for 344 yards and seven touchdowns in the FIRST HALF on Friday night as Brother Martin (New Orleans) beat St. Stanislaus (Bay St. Louis, Miss.) by a score of 68-21.

The junior running back carried 19 times and scored on runs of 20 and 13 yards in the first quarter and runs of 2, 67, 12, 80 and 83 yards in the second as Brother Martin built a 47-14 lead at halftime.

Jordan-Swilling scored five touchdowns in the season opener last week and now have five on the season.

“Bruce can definitely be one of the best running backs to come from the state,” coach Mark Bonis told NOLA.com. “He’s very special. He’s being coached by a guy who held all the records at Brother Martin, Dante Butler, and they practice every day, so yeah I think he can be one of the best backs from the state.”

Jordan-Swilling is ranked as the No. 6 outside linebacker in the Class of 2017 by the 247Sports.com Composite Rankings and the No. 6 player overall in the state of Louisiana.

He has a number of offers and is projected as an eventual LSU commit, although Oklahoma and Miami (Fla.) also appear to be in the mix at this point.
