During his first five years of football for the Texas Longhorns, Nordgren was the first person in the NCAA University of Texas Football history to graduate with two degrees in 3 ½ years. He spent the last year of his Longhorn football career in graduate school studying Business Management before heading off to play professional football.

After his time on Bravo’s Most Eligible Dallas, Nordgren was inspired to pursue his dedication for sports and charity and thereby established The Leadership Foundation in February of 2011. The foundation is an organization committed to giving back to non-profits whose purpose is to empower youth through sports and education. He recognizes the advantage that higher education can provide, opening doors for greater opportunities in life. Nordgren feels strongly that young people, regardless of their personal circumstances, should have the opportunity for a bright future and the chance to make a positive impact.
