Jackson Feels Good About All American Status

Friday morning Klein Collins' Charles Jackson was named to the Army All-American Bowl, which is played at the AlamoDome in January in San Antonio, Texas. Jackson, who is a verbal commit to Nebraska, has a few thoughts…

This past Friday, Klein Collins defensive back Charles Jackson was selected to play in the US Army All American Game. 

"This is a big deal and this feels really good. It's like one of the biggest moments in my life," Jackson said. "An honor like this brings motivation to our (Klein Collins) program here."

And that program has been making some noise here in the last couple of years with a number of district titles and some playoff appearances. Though the Collins team fell to Austin Bowie this past weekend in Round 1 of the Class 5A state playoffs, Jackson did set a lofty goal for himself prior to the match up.

"I want to have a few picks in this game. And , I want to try and have more tackles than (linebacker) David Santos," Jackson said.

The advantage to that statement is that Jackson can keep that same goal in mind seeing that he and Santos are both headed for Lincoln to play ball for Nebraska

"Nebraska stands out because it is a great environment for me to be in. I got the chance to feel how the team does things in the pre-game warm up and how hype the field is," Jackson said. "I loved it and everything about it was terrific."

The All American game will be played in San Antonio at the AlamoDome on January 8, 2011. Jackson will suit up for the West squad.
