Brian Jackson Q&A

He chose WMU over Michigan State, Bowling Green and Eastern Michigan; now he's spent a season as a stallion, ran track at WMU and is ready for more. The former high school track star talks about spring practice, moving onto the first team offense, and his role on the team.

How did winter conditioning go for you?

It wasn't that bad because I've been running track since track has been going on.

Do you have a recent 40-yard time?

4.61 was one of the faster ones I've run, but I'm not exactly a good 40 guy.

How do you feel spring football has been going so far?

It's been going pretty good. I first started playing the X position, but they just recently moved me to T because they [the coaches] think I'll be better utilized there. I had to learn everything over again. I'm out there not knowing all the plays exactly.

Can we expect to see a rotation between 3 wide receivers and 2 tight ends continue?

My T position is only in when there are 3 wide receivers, and sometimes coach Rock uses the tight ends as play receivers so I just rotate when he says ‘go in.'

How does it feel to step into a role on the first team offense?

It feels good going from Stallion last year to playing on the first team. It's what I expected to do this year. It feels good, but I expected to do it.

Who around you do you feel has been stepping up this spring?

Mike Slater, Joe Chapple, and Justin LeMay out of the receivers that have been doing good.

What are your plans for the summer?

I only live an hour away so I'll be back and forth, but mostly here.

What are your expectations for this fall?

Win. What everyone else expects, and that's to win every game so that's what I expect.
