Who Is This Palm Beach County Legend? James Jackson/Glades Central

Recommended Posts

He had a very successful career as a Cane, but arguably did not get the press that he deserved.  He played several years in the NFL, but his career there never really took off.  He was also a great baseball player in hs, and was a first round draft pick, but chose football over baseball.

1. Who is he?

2. Where did he play in high school?  

3. He was not in the limelight during his early years at the U because he played the same position as two absolute giants of the game.  Who were those two other players?
