This season the Carolina Panthers are recognizing ten high school student-athletes in the Carolinas through the team’s Community Captain Program, which recognizes outstanding high school student-athletes who excel in their sport, in the classroom, and in their community. “The Carolina Panthers are pleased to recognize some of our region’s best and brightest student-athletes,” said Carolina Panthers director of community relations Riley Fields. “It is our hope this year’s class of Community Captains will continue their personal growth and achievement in college and in their professional careers and continue to serve as leaders in their community.”

Off the field, McDaniel has spent the last two years helping a local church set up for their services which are held in the school, as well as volunteering with the congregation to visit nursing homes and work with Operation Christmas Child. He serves as a carpool ambassador at James Island Elementary School and also supports the middle school athletic program at James Island Middle School.
“In the years that I have known Jordan, he has shown leadership, dedication, perseverance and a tremendous work ethic.” said James Island Charter High School Athletic Director Jeremy Holland. “He has all the qualities you would want in a student, player and role model.”
