Hello, my name is La'Darius Jackson and i am 17 years old and a sophomore at East Feliciana High School located in Jackson, Louisiana. I have been playing high school football for 2 years as a starter. I will begin describing some important statistics about myself as an athelete. First of all I am 5 feet, 8 inches, I weigh 166 pounds, my 40 times is 4.71, shuttle-4.69, broad-8'3', vertical-29.5, Jump reach-118, stand reach-88.5, Bench Rep-30 and Bench Pounds-155. I feel that my most important accomplishments thus far is playing on a team for the 2010-2011 school year going undefeated with a winning record of 12/0 and receiving the title of State/District Champions. I feel that I can offer my team in which I play the following: * Being a very hard worker-First to get on the field and the last to leave the field. * Drive/tenacity-childhood dream to play college football and possibly go pro. * Learning how to play within a team,instead of outside or above the greater group. * play the way in which I practice. * Be very dedicated, motivated, and physically and mentally healthy. * Hustling on every play. * Exceed my coach's expecatations for every drill. * Being confident. * Study by first exceling in school and study within a football context, by studying all I can. *Focus on drills to help improve areas that are needed *Be a team player *Most of all having a "Be the Best Attitude" The school that I want to attend is Louisiana State University located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The reason I want to attend this school is because this is the #1 state school, it is an elite school, highly profiled for its academics as well as sports. My dream has always been to attend a college of my choice however, there will be a financial need. My desired major is to pursue mechanical engineering at LSU. My realistic goals are to be the best football and team player that I can be when given the opportunity.
