On October 11, 2017, Jordan Swoyer committed to play Division 1 men’s lacrosse at Queens University of Charlotte, North Carolina.

On National Signing Day, November 8, Swoyer signed his National Letter of Intent.

Swoyer set the record, 49, for most assists his sophomore year.

During his junior year lacrosse season, Swoyer scored 52 goals, made 54 assists, adding up to 106 total points, breaking his assists record set the previous year.

Swoyer was the first underclassman in Frederick County to win U.S. All American.

Junior year, Swoyer won All-County Player of the Year for offense.

Swoyer has been playing sports since he was six years old. He has played basketball, baseball, and golf, but lacrosse was his calling.

The star lacrosse player is often recognized for his leadership and setting his teammates up for success. He has drive, tenacity, and is the best teammate he can be.

Father and coach Stan Swoyer was emotional at the event. He said, “Now that Jordan is leaving for college, proud is the first word that comes to mind. At the same time, I’m slightly sad knowing I won’t be able to spend as much time with him as I do on a regular basis.”

Coached by Chris Kivlen, the Royals men’s lacrosse team went 10-7 in their 2017 season.

Coach Swoyer said, “I am a huge fan of Coach Kivlen. I love his style, I love the approach that he takes to the team and the culture, which is very important, and I’m looking forward to watching Jordan play for him. I’m going to go to absolutely every game I can.”
