"This is Grant, Harrison and Spencer,” said Biz Jordan.

Who would’ve thought that a picture snapped in the late 90’s would be a glimpse into the future for the Jordan family. 

"Harrison who is #38 at the University of Nebraska was wearing #38 back when he was four,” said Biz Jordan.

Not one, not two, but all three Jordan boys will be suiting up for the Huskers come fall.  

“The thought of having all three boys on the team, that's a dream come true to have that happen,” said Kristina Jordan.

Biz and Kristina Jordan’s oldest son Harrison is a junior fullback for the Huskers.  Their youngest are the twins, Westside seniors Spencer and Grant. 

“Harrison would always have us put our football equipment on just before football season started and he'd make us hit each other to get used to the contact,” said Grant Jordan.

Growing up three years apart Harrison and the twins got to play in the backyard together, but never played on the same team. 

“I always wanted to play football with them, but I was always busy with my football.  So I never really got to experience football with my little brothers,” said Harrison Jordan.

In 2013 Harrison walked-on at Nebraska.  The twins wanted to follow in their big brother’s footsteps and play Division I ball. 

“We said now if you go to another university, you better hope that there is a bye weekend because we are going to the Nebraska games first,” joked Biz Jordan. 

Lucky for Biz and Kristina, the boys only had one school on their radar. 

“Living in Nebraska there is only one team that you love and that's the Cornhuskers,” said Grant Jordan.

At the end of this season Coach Mike Riley asked the twins to join their older brother and walk-on. 

“Coach Riley looked at me and said hey I just offered your sons a walk-on position here at Nebraska and I just broke down in tears,” said Kristina Jordan.

It was a dream come true for the entire family. 

“Practices will be super interesting because I’ll be on defense going up against Harrison the majority of the time.  I’ve never like hit him and he hits pretty hard,” said Grant Jordan. 

Harrison is also looking forward to practice. 

“To be able to hit ‘em, to hit my little brothers and not get in trouble,” joked Harrison Jordan.

While Grant goes head to head with his brother, Spencer says he will be gunning for his big brother’s spot. 

“He thinks that he will still beat me out or whatever, but time will tell I guess,” said Spencer Jordan. 

Looks like Coach Riley will now be the one mediating the sibling rivalry. 

“It's going to be an unbelievable ride these next five years and I’m looking forward to it,” said Kristina Jordan.
