Jamel Jackson

I was born and raised in Cocoa, Florida. I attended Cocoa High School, where I developed into an ESPN 3 Star recruit for defensive back while playing for renowned coach John Wilkinson, making it to at least the state semifinals each of my four years as a varsity player. Coach Wilk was more like a father figure to me as he preached hard work and discipline on a daily basis, values that remain instilled in me today. I originally committed to Temple University, but prior to signing day my scholarship was pulled. Adversity struck early, so I learned how to adjust prior to attending Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, Tennessee. The culture and environment were not a fit for my ambition and passion for the sport, so after playing there for two seasons I transferred to the University of West Florida, where I graduated with a degree in Mass Communications.During my time at West Florida, my career stat line was 67 tackles, 1.5 TFLs, 3 INTs, 9 BU, 1 fumble recovery, and 139 INT yards and I earned a spot in the NCAA Division II National Championship game. I’ve been blessed to have a mentor/coach who made a instant impact on my life since Day 1: Coach James Folston, a former NFL player for eight seasons. Working hands on with Coach Folston over the years helped me develop into a better student athlete and learn how to become a professional in everything I do outside of sports.
