NEWPORT BEACH, Ca. – USC’s all-purpose star Adoree’ Jackson has been named the Lott IMPACT Player of the Week.
The 5-11, 185-pound junior made numerous big plays in the Trojans’ 21-17 win over Colorado Saturday. Jackson had a dynamic 47-yard punt return, a 38-yard kick return, six tackles and a highlight-reel interception in the win.
In recognition of Jackson’s performance, the Pacific Club IMPACT Foundation, sponsors of the Lott IMPACT Trophy, will make a $1,000 donation to the general scholarship fund at USC.
Wrote Alex Kirshner of SB Nation on Jackson’s interception. “Jackson does a mid-air banana split, basically, and somehow manages to tap his right foot in bounds without either destroying a ligament or losing the ball. It’s an incredible feat of flexibility and coordination.”
Jackson leads the nation in punt returns with an 18.7 yard average and is 8th in the nation in kick returns with 31.7 yard average.
