Q and A with Jordan Mailata

What’s the thing you miss most about Australia when you’re in Philadelphia playing NFL?

Food, people, family - family the most! I miss simple things like meat pies and sausage rolls. And Lebanese.

You have had a crash course in NFL, how are you feeling a year on?

I feel more confident having a year under my belt, still a long way to go though. There’s not many guys at all with my history so that’s something I will hold very closely, not brag about but teaches other people just to take a leap of faith – take that first step and give it everything you’ve got.

If you could give yourself one piece of advice 5 years ago, what would it be?

I think one thing that I’ve learnt recently is be what you’re feeling. If I did that 5 years ago I would’ve dealt with things better. I mean, who knows what happens, but be who you are in the moment, in the present.

If there’s one clothing item you can’t live without, what would it be?

Ooh I really like the black Johnny Bigg pants – I can’t live without them!

What is your favourite item from the Autumn/Winter collection?

Probably the denim jacket that I’m wearing, I’m really feeling myself in it.

What is your favourite Johnny Bigg Item so far?

Those black Zane Johnny Bigg pants and their Chelsea boots.

Johnny Bigg has a long history of partnering with Beyond Blue, do you have any tips on how you look after your mental health?

When I started to notice I was on my way down, I’d start to talk to my peers and they shot me right back up. So just opening up to someone can be a change to the way you feel about yourself or the situation you’re in.
