Striving for perfection with a competitive spirit, relentless work ethic, and an expectation of excellence is a part of my DNA. My Name is Connor Jackson, class of 2022, and I am the only son of 7 children. Competing is an everyday activity in my household. Academic excellence is expected and giving 100% in everything I do is the only option. Sports have become a daily routine in my family. Between the 7 of us there is always an event.
I started playing sports in pre-K. I played soccer, football and basketball. Soccer has always been my true passion. I caught on quickly and advanced rapidly. My primary position is wing however I play forward and midfield as well. I am proficient at multiple positions depending on my teams need. The past 3 years I have been competing at the Premier and National league level with Global Premier Soccer. 2 years ago I decided to put my focus on soccer as my main sport and in doing so I have travelled with GPS Carolina Elite and played in the 39th and 40th annual Dallas Cup advancing to the elite 8 each year.
Although, I am passionate about soccer my academic success comes first. I am an honors student maintaining above a 4.0 GPA. My goal is to further my education at a competitive 4 year institution pursuing a degree in a STEM related field ultimately finishing with at least a Master’s degree. Athletically I plan to give 100% of my ability, drive, passion, and creativity to my coaches and teammates of the collegiate program I am blessed to join.
