MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — When Dylan Jackson gets started playing college football, hitting the "freshman wall" that sometimes comes with playing football in late November or early December will not be new to the Volunteer State standout.
The 6-foot-6, 245-pounder is a three-year starter and captain for Maryville (14-0). He and the Rebels play in the TSSAA Class 6A state championship at Tucker Stadium in Cookeville on Saturday night. Maryville punched its ticket to its 11th straight championship game by eliminating Scout No. 50-ranked Oakland 26-14 on Friday.
Thus far, the Tennessee commit has 43 tackles (29 solo), 10 tackles for loss and two sacks.
The Scout three-star prospect was a finalist for Tennessee Titans TSSAA Class AAA Lineman of the Year.
