Must-watch: Former Andover Central state hurdles champion jumps over defender for first collegiate touchdown

Jordan Birch was one of the state’s best hurdlers while he was at Andover Central, winning the Class 5A championship in 2015 in the 110-meter hurdles.

Birch looked like he was back on the track on Saturday, as he scored his first collegiate touchdown in Illinois State’s 45-0 romp over Butler by jumping over a defender and scoring a 26-yard touchdown.

Birch redshirted last season and played in his first game on Saturday, finishing with five rushes for 37 yards.
