Ashton Jackson may be just a sophomore, but that hasn't stopped schools from picking up interest in…
"Action" Jackson Impressed In 2011
Trotwood-Madison is one of the top talent-producing programs in Ohio, and the Rams will look to defend their Division-II state title in 2012, backed by another talented squad. Ashton Jackson gained over 1,000 yards in 2011 as a sophomore, and he spent the season as a backup to super junior tailback Israel Green. Jackson also scored 17 touchdowns. "My sophomore year was great, and I appreciated the chances Coach (Mo) Douglass gave me," Jackson stated. "I was the second-string tailback, so I had to make my carries count. As a tailback, I have the speed to go the distance from anywhere on the field. I'm one of the fastest players on our team, but I need to work on making better cuts." The 5-foot-10, 180-pound, tailback has playing college football as his goal in life, and he is in the process of doing what's necessary on and off the field to make that a reality. "I'm interested in Ohio State, Michigan and Notre Dame right now, but I like a lot of schools to be honest," he explained. "Being around guys like Cameron Burrows and Bam Bradley inspires me to be better, because they do well in the classroom and in football. My grades are good, and they always have been, so I know how important the classwork is. Coach Douglass is always stressing to us the importance of academics, and I take that seriously." Even though he is splitting carries at Trotwood, Jackson has a chance to be a high-priority recruit. He has great speed and has the frame to add bulk over the next year or so. He is a top prospect for the class of 2014.
