KCK Preps Prospect - Jordan Jackson (Bonner Springs)

by David Brox, davidbrox@shukc.com

One of my favorite players in the city is Jordan Jackson from Bonner Springs.  As expected at the beginning of the season I thought his game would evolve to include more responsibility on the ground and that certainly held true. 

Jackson finished the season with 100/204 for 1274 yards 10 TD's and 9 INT's.  The 9 INT's is the big number that he will have to improve upon next season without question.  135 carries for 720 yards and 8 TD's.  To think the expectations were so high that 1944 total yards and 18 total TD's leaves a bad taste in the mouth seems silly to me but that is where we sit after 2012.

I have told Jordan personally that my goal for him next season is 2500 total yards and 20+ TD's. 

"That is a very achievable goal." said Jackson

Attainable or not I know that he will take this as a challenge between now and his senior season to get bigger, faster and stronger.

It is simple to say that Jackson missed his brother Johnathan and Stevie Williams.  I think in the end the entire team missed them and earned some very valuable experience during this season.  It is my hope that Kyle Dumler, Travis Dooley and Jared Knernshield work just as hard but more importantly along side Jackson this summer to take the next step.

I think colleges need to do some due diligence on this young man.  All the intangibles are there in regards to leadership and academics.  You can see in his film from 2011 and 2012 that he has speed and fundamentals throwing to be successful at the next level.

Below are his 2012 highlights.  It took me a minute to draw a comparison but (especially running the ball) I see Taylor Martinez at Nebraska.
