Basil Jackson is an Arlington, TX native, and Tarleton State University Alumni. He earned notoriety as a “tackling machine” at the collegiate level. While he was invited for tryouts with the Dallas Cowboys, Seattle Seahawks, and entertained interest from the Canadian Football League, Jackson ultimately signed a contract to play for the Braunschweig New Yorker Lions in the German Football League where he won a
German Bowl. Basil is currently signed with the Calgary Stampeders in the Canadian Football League. Basil brings a lot to the table, not just with his on-field ability and his athletic career, but in his personal charitable projects that are community-centered. When he is not on the field, Basil enjoys listening to, reading, and writing, serving as a mentor, spending time with family, and continuing work on his upcoming book.
