In his first-ever start at offensive tackle, Jackson helped Tech accumulate 594 total yards with eight plays of 20 yards or more. Jackson, a junior, had played guard for his entire Tech career before being switched to right tackle for Saturday's game. Jackson was the only Tech player chosen as a player of the week and the first Yellow Jacket to earn ACC player-of-the-week recognition.
Not too shabby for a Jackson's first-ever start at right tackle.
Jackson stands at 6'3, 290-pounds, and is from Knoxville, Tenn. The redshirt junior was named to the 2012 Second Team Preseason All-ACC team prior to this season. Jackson was also named to the 2010 ACC All-Academic team.
