Westover's Jackson glad for second chance

By Robert Hydrick - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A leg injury not only cost Westover quarterback Rashad Jackson most of his senior year with the Patriots football team.

It likely cost him a Division I scholarship.

Jackson still has a chance to play at the DI level.

He signed Friday to play at Highland Community College in Kansas.

Since he has qualified academically, Rashad can transfer to a  DI school after one year.

Jackson though isn't thinking about that.

He is just looking forward to the chance to be able to play football again.

Rashad Jackson said. "I could have gone to a lot of DII schools but I felt like I had a better opportunity of going DI this way. I have a chance to start this fall."

Jackson was second team 1-AAA his junior year.
