This week's Prep Star of the Week, Justin Jackson, hails from Glenbard North High School.
The junior running back is one of the top-ranked backs in the country for the class of 2014. Jackson made four touchdowns in the Class 8A quarterfinal game against Maine South.
Jackson's most impressive carry comes on his third touchdown run of the day. In the first play from scrimmage of the second half, he took off fast, broke to the outside, passed another player by, cut back and completed 88 yards to score.
He rushed for 210 yards, as the Panthers moved on to the state semi-finals with a 29-23 victory.
By the way, Jackson is an honors student who carries a 5.0 GPA – getting it done off the field! Congratulations to Justin.
