The future looks bright for Fairfield (Ohio) senior defensive back Josiah Jackson on and off the football field. Jackson, who already has his future planned out to attend West Virginia University with his twin brother, Jordan Jackson, and play for the Mountaineers, is a big reason many are excited about the season expected out of Fairfield in 2022.
The Indians opened OHSAA play with an impressive 41-24 win over Huber Heights (Ohio) Wayne, with Jackson playing a pivotal role. The win gave Fairfield head coach Jason Krause his 150th career win while allowing Jackson and his teammates to add another part of the legacy they look to leave behind when they close this chapter of their lives.
Standing 6-foot-1, 175-pounds, Jackson has excellent physical tools with a long frame, long arms, and the ability to flip his hips and provide press coverage. He’s also physical and athletic enough to play corner or safety at the next level.
We spoke with Jackson following his team’s win about playing for Coach Krause, starting the season with a significant win, season goals, and future in Morgantown in this exclusive one-on-one interview presented by First Star Logistics.
