Basil Jackson is an Arlington, TX native, fresh out of Tarleton State University, where he earned notoriety as a “tackling machine” at the collegiate level. While he was invited for tryouts with the Dallas Cowboys, Seattle Seahawks, and entertained interest from the Canadian Football League, Jackson ultimately signed a contract to play for the Braunschweig New Yorker Lions in the German Football League.

Basil brings a lot to the table, not just with his on-field ability and his athletic career, but in his personal charitable projects that are community-centered. When he is not on the field, Basil enjoys listening to, reading, and writing about all things Jesus. Serving as a mentor, spending time with family, and continuing work on his upcoming book.
