Bobby Jackson's number "45" was retired by Albany High School during Friday night's game against Mitchell County.
Jackson was named to the All-Time New York Jets team for his work during his 8-year stint with the team. He was also inducted into the Florida State Hall of Fame in 1993.
Despite his accolades, he is still happy for this newest honor.
"Just to know that nobody else can wear the number 45 at Albany High is a great honor," Jackson said.
Albany High lost the game 20-14.
