pageBlockTable sort controller

I have built a VF page to extend the use of the Mass Edit and Mass Update App from the Labs to a custom object.  My dilemma is I can't get the table to sort my the "Job Ticket Name"  I have built a "sortExtension" controller, but I don't think that is going to work.  Below is the code for the VF page and the controller. I also don't know if sorting this is even possible since it is input fields.   Any help is greatly appreciated.


VF Page


<apex:page standardController="Job_Ticket__c" extensions="sortExtension" recordSetVar="unused" sidebar="false">

<!-- for this page to work with a specific custom object, change standController="entityname" to custom object api name  
    For example, if custom object name is Warehouse__c, change first part of the first line to standardController="warehouse__c" -->

<apex:includeScript value="{!$Resource.UtilJS}" />
<apex:form >
<apex:pageBlock >
<apex:pageMessages />
<apex:pageBlock >
Note: All modifications made on the page will be lost if Return button is clicked without clicking the Save button first. 
<apex:pageBlockButtons >
