Former NFL All-Pro receiver Harold Jackson was the featured guest on ‘In And Out Of Sports’, hosted by D.C. talk show legend Butch McAdams.
The 5-foot-10 Jackson was selected in the 12th round of the 1968 NFL draft by the Los Angeles Rams out of Jackson State University.
It did not take him long to establish himself as one of the NFL’s best receivers. Jackson was a bonafide deep threat who could also take a short pass and go the distance. Jackson would go on to catch 579 passes for 10,372 yards and 76 touchdown passes while averaging 17.2 yards per catch over his career. Jackson played 15 seasons with the Rams, Eagles, Patriots and Seahawks.
Jackson discussed his career at Jackson State as a player, and later as a coach, and his time playing, and later coaching in the NFL.
Butch also spent a few minutes speaking with Georgetown’s Father Ray Kemp, who performed the eulogy for Hoya’s coaching legend John Thompson. ‘In And Out Of Sports’ is sponsored by Horton Funeral Service, Takoma Station, and Elite Dental. Click to hear the interview.
