Marmot Basin/Hostelling International Jasper Athlete of the Week for October 24 - 30, 2016

Jackson had a solid two games for the NAIT Ooks men’s basketball team this past weekend in their sweep of the visiting GPRC Wolves. The now 4-0 Ooks defeated the Wolves 85-68 Friday where Jackson tallied 39 points and 9 rebounds. The next day saw NAIT win 73-66 and Jackson had 23 points and 11 rebounds.  “Jackson made key baskets in both games and at times took over the game to help the Ooks win,” said NAIT head coach Mike Connolly. “He was a real thorne in the side of the visiting Wolves grabbing key offensive rebounds and making important shots down the stretch.” 

Jackson is a 2nd year Professional Meat Cutting and Merchandising student from Nassau, New Providence Island.
