Winner Sport: Football

The All Sports Association proudly welcomes football star Jordan Leggett as our 2020 Professional Award winner. Jordan is no stranger to All Sports — he was our Collegiate winner in 2016. Jordan grew up in Navarre, where he played his first football game as a 10-year-old boy in the Navarre Youth Sports Association. Leggett was a star at Navarre High School — in his final two seasons, he caught 100 passes for 1,572 yards and 10 TDs.

Leggett made an immediate impact at Clemson, where he played college football. As a true freshman in 2013, Leggett played in 10 games, recorded 10 receptions and scored two touchdowns. Leggett’s Clemson teams played in two national championship games, winning one in 2017, defeating top-ranked Alabama 35-31. Leggett was a huge contributor for Clemson — he finished his final game with seven receptions for 95 yards, and finished his college career as the all-time leader in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns by a Clemson tight end.

Leggett was selected by the New York Jets in the 2017 NFL Draft. He signed with the Jets, but a preseason knee injury delayed the start of his professional career. After undergoing knee surgery, Leggett was back by Week 4 of the 2018
season, recording three catches and a touchdown in a game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. In 2019, Leggett was picked up by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, his current team. Congratulations to Jordan Leggett, All Sports Association 2020 Professional Award Winner.
