Marmot Basin/Hostelling International Jasper Athlete of the Week for February 20 - 26, 2017

Despite the NAIT Ooks dropping both of their contests to the Augustana Vikings this past weekend, Jackson continued to put up stellar numbers. On Saturday night he netted 45 points, shooting 16 for 30 from the floor and made 9 of 10 free throws. He also had 8 rebounds, 6 assists, and 4 steals. His 78 points in 2 games allowed him to capture the scoring title for the ACAC and the CCAA with a 29 points per game average. “Jackson’s play is maturing to a point where he is starting to understand efficiency,” said Head Coach Mike Connolly. “He has been our most consistent player all year and is going into the ACAC championship tournament playing very well”.

Jackson is a 2nd year Professional Meat Cutting student from Nassau, Bahamas.
