“Defending Jackson is like corralling the chickens - it appears you have him right where you want him, and then he is gone and out of your reach.  This burst of speed Jackson possesses allows him to separate from his defenseman and shoot uncontested.  Not surprisingly, Jackson is proving he has a quick retention of the offensive schematics.  This first-year brings an inquisitiveness and fresh perspective to our training sessions.”
