Last week, Jackson was named the national special teams player of the week by the Masters Coaches Award for his performance in the win over Alabama.
This week, Jackson was honored for his role as a punter and place kicker in LSU's 40-7 win over Ole Miss. Jackson kicked a season-long 48-yard field goal against the Rebels, while also having all three of his punts downed inside the 20-yard line in the Ole Miss game.
Kicking on the short side of the field all three times, Jackson averaged only 32.7 yards per punt, but his three punts were downed at the 14, 11, and 17-yard lines.
Handling the LSU kickoff duties, Jackson's kicks, along with the Tiger coverage team, pinned Ole Miss inside its 20-yard line seven times on seven kickoffs. On LSU's seven kickoffs against Ole Miss, the Rebels average starting field position was the 14-yard line.
Other honors handed out by the league office on Monday include quarterback Jay Cutler of Vanderbilt (SEC Offensive Player of the Week); defensive end Stanley McClover of Auburn (SEC Defensive Player of the Week); offensive guard Nick Jones of Georgia (SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week); defensive end Jamaal Anderson of Arkansas (SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week); and wide receiver Earl Bennett of Vanderbilt (SEC Freshman of the Week).
