Jackson led Chaminade-Madonna to a state title. In his senior season, Jackson finished with 17 sacks and 72 tackles in 11 games while leading his team to an 11-1 record.

But Jackson has big aspirations beyond football. He wants to be a surgeon.

“I want to go to school and major in sports medicine. I want to be an orthopedic surgeon,” Jackson told CBS4’s Mike Cugno. He said he was watching YouTube videos when he was younger and saw a video about surgeries. “Helping people and things like that. That’s just been my thing ever since that day,” Jackson said.
