Coach Talk

“On the field, he’s explosive, he’s a playmaker and a leader. Off the field, the way he trains, the way he studies in the classroom, the way he attends to younger players are the things that nobody sees make him a special all-around player. He has his priorities straight of where he wants to go in life. He’s very humble about what he has in front of him and he takes it very seriously.”  — Beaver head coach Cort Rowse


Jackson has a well-equipped repertoire that makes him dangerous all over the field. Offensively, Jackson is a slick route runner with good footwork and has a knack for finding the end zone. In the wildcat and returning kicks, Jackson is elusive and has breakaway speed. As a defensive back, where he is being recruited at, Jackson plays well in man and press coverage. Has good ball instincts and is a takeaway threat.
