Heart & Soul

From the moment Jackson laces up his KD's, it's game time. He hustles on both ends of the floor, seeing the whole court both offensively & defensively. He's a unique player and a leader by example. 
He helps to control the tempo of the game, slowing down the ball when needed or picking up the pace to hit that clutch three. Whether it's the perfect assist, the tricky steal, or the famous shot from his sweet spot, Jackson gets it done. 

With big dreams to make it to the highest level in this game, anyone that watches him play will quickly believe in those big dreams of his.
