Student Spotlight features Jesuit linebacker Vincent Jackson

Posted: Updated:

This week's Student Spotlight features Jesuit linebacker Vincent Jackson.

He's only a junior, but Jackson has already had offers from over 30 schools, including Alabama, USC, and Ohio State to name a few.

On playing against nationally ranked teams such as Plant and Robinson, Jackson states, "Size doesn't define me to be honest, I have more heart than anybody that I know of. I wanna play against anybody." 

Jackson isn't shy to a little friendly competition either. When asked about Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson, who shares the same name, Jackson states,  "When Vincent Jackson moved down here I tweeted out one time, I'm like ‘It's only room for one Vincent Jackson here in Tampa' so I mean I'm pretty sure he got the message, he knows that. I mean I'm trying to claim the city as mine not somebody else's."
