Army honors deceased teammate Brandon Jackson

-

Brandon Jackson passed away tragically as a result of a car accident earlier this season. His team and university will honor him this weekend by painting his No. 28 on the 28-yard line.

They will also wear decals on their helmets the rest of the season.

Jackson crashed into the guardrail around 1:50 a.m.  20 miles outside of the U.S. Military Academy in Croton, NY. He had started in the Army’s victory over Rice earlier the previous afternoon.

He was still in the car when respondents arrived and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Jackson was a 20-year-old sophomore from Queens, New York and appeared in every game for Army last season. He led the Black Nights with three interceptions and 62 tackles. He was off to a similarly fast start his season.

Head coach Jeff Monken called Jackson’s passing an “unfathomable loss” and has stated that the program will find different ways to honor Jackson throughout the year.

“I hope the way we honor him most is how we play, and how we conduct ourselves in everything we do,” Monken said.
