Catching Up With Will Jackson

Three Star offensive guard Will Jackson, 6-4, 290 pounds from Knoxville-Farragut (Tenn.) talks about the latest with his commitment to Georgia Tech and his senior season. Find out what Jackson had to say about his team's first loss and the rest of his team's season.

Will Jackson said of his commitment to Georgia Tech, "It's great I couldn't be happier with it. I am 100% committed." Jackson has been extremely impressed with the Yellow Jackets and their play so far in 2008. He explained, "They have a chance to take over the lead in their division in the ACC. I think they are having a great year and Coach Johnson is doing a fantastic job."

One recruit that many Yellow Jacket fans will keep up with is three star tight end/defensive end prospect from Knoxville-Catholic (Tenn.) Daniel Hood, 6-5, 260 pounds. Jackson has pledged to help Coach Johnson and his staff pull in one of the top classes in the country and he plans to help reel in Hood. Jackson said of Hood, "He was down there when I was on an unofficial visit when they play Mississippi State. I am trying to stay in his ear a little bit. I was texting him earlier today actually. I'm not going to pester to him because the decision is going to be his."

For Jackson and his teammates the season has been going great so far, but there was a minor setback this past Friday when they took on Ooltewah (Tenn.) in a big region game. Jackson and his teammates from the Knoxville-Farragut Admirals lost pretty handedly 31-3. He said of the game, "It was real disappointing. Nothing went right for us and it was just awful. That is the best way to describe it. They were a real physical team and well coached. We need to hand it to them because they are a great team, but I hope we get to see them again."

The Admirals hope to get back on track this week in another big time region game. Jackson reported, "We've got Soddy Daisy and we are going to get everything together and firing on all cylinders by the time Friday comes around." He went on to say of his expectations, "Our expectations is to win a state championship because ever since my sophomore year that is what our goal has been. One loss won't dampen our spirits at all. Our goal is to play in Murfreesboro and win a gold ball."
