Jack of All Trades

Posted Mar 11, 2003

An accomplished corner in both is sophomore and junior season, Jack will be called on to expand his role for Marlin head coach Ray Seals in 2003.

“Coach Seals told me that I will also be working at wide receiver and some running back this spring,” an excited Jack told HR on Monday night. “I was used at corner and as a kick returner in my first two seasons.

Jack put up impressive numbers in his sophomore season, recording 26 solos with 10 assists, one fumble recovery, one caused fumble and one interception. He upped those numbers in 2002, recording 33 solos with 10 assists, two caused fumbles, three interceptions, one blocked field goal and one fumble recovery that Jacks especially remembers.

“Aldine was going in for a touchdown, when they fumbled on the one-yard line,” he said. “I was able to pick it up and return it 99 yards for a touchdown.”

Jack is five-foot-eleven, 180-lbs and runs a 4.4. He has a 275-bench, 335-squat and 34-inch vertical. Jacks carries a 3.0 GPA and will take his SAT on April 5th. He was asked about tough opponents.

“(Houston Westbury’s) George Walker is a terrific receiver, although he caught only one pass against us last year,” Jack said. “(Houston Washington tailback) Brandon Jackson is also an excellent player. And we wear the same number (#4).”

Jeffery was asked for his early favorites.

“I like Penn State, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas Tech, Texas A&M and Houston,” he said. “You can put LSU in there too.”

And summer camps?

“I’ll be going to the Nike camp again,” he said. “I would also like to attend the camp at Texas along with the Rodney Hampton and Steve McNair camps.”

And does Jack have a particular favorite?

“That would be Texas,” he said. “But I do know they have quite a few DB’s.”

Jeffery was asked if he was related to Jason Jack, the Humble defensive end that signed with Texas A&M last month.

“I don’t think so,” Jack said. “I really don’t know Jason.”

But recruiters will quickly become acquainted with this talented cornerback.
