The Herald made a decision to name the annual Gadsden County Football Player of the Year in honor of long-time county coach Robert Jackson.
Jackson served the county for over 25 years at Greensboro High and then West Gadsden.
On presenting the first award Jackson seemed overwhelmed. “We got the Lombardi Award, the Heisman Award, and now the Jackson Award,” Jackson said. “I’m very honored and appreciate this so much.”
