Justin Jackson has done a lot in his time Northwestern. Jackson had 1187 yards on 245 carries as a freshman and 1418 yards on 312 carries as a sophomore. He came into this season prepared for an even heavier workload. So it’s no wonder Northwestern decided to name a street outside Ryan Field after him.
Northwestern started the season by dropping two of their first three games, but Jackson has averaged 21 carries, 86 yards and 1 touchdown a game. Considering the added responsibility he’s taken on with caring for Jackson Avenue, that’s pretty impressive.
