They finished region play with a 6-0 record. Mortimer Jordan reached the second round of the playoffs before falling to Wenonah by a score of 21-14.

       Coach Goode's overall record as a head football coach in six season stands at 55-20 (73.3%). Over the course of his career, Coach Goode's teams have qualified for the playoffs a total of six times and won two region championships.

       The Mortimer Jordan Blue Devils will play in Class 5A region five during the 2018 season. Following realignment, the Blue Devils remain in 5A but move from region six over to region five.
