Name: Demarius Jackson , "Street Sweeper"
Height & Weight: 5’7’235
Position: Defensive Tackle / Offensive Lineman
Team: Cedar Grove Middle School
February 2,2016 ,
Let me introduce you to Demarius Jackson a small town kid from Ellenwood, Georgia with a overwhelming love for the game of Football & drive to be the best. Jackson is a quiet, unassuming sort off the field, but turns into a disruptive force when he is in his element at the center of the defensive line. The ultimate "Clean up man,". What gives Demarius the edge is his ability to defeat double-team which allows his teammates on defensive to have major success getting to the quarterback, and having clear lanes to the ball carrier. While he may lack the ideal size to play in a two-gap system, his explosiveness off the snap to create movement has drawn favorable comparisons to University of Georgia’s true Freshman 5 star recruit Trenton Thompson from nearby Albany.
