Tennessee State Tigers (6-5)


Buchanan Award winner Jackson goes after the big catch

(STATS) - Darius Jackson's father wasn't a fan of his son's fishing habits when he was young.

Darius often threw his line out, reeled it in and tossed it out again. He'd even take the worm off his line and throw it into the water instead of keeping it as bait.

Years later, the lack of patience remains with Jackson, although the big catches haven't gotten away. In a hurry to get to quarterbacks, the former Jacksonville State standout was one of the leading pass rushers in the FCS in recent years.
