One of the conference’s key veterans.
The first member of the Air Force Falcons to arrive on our countdown of Mountain West football’s top players is defensive lineman Jordan Jackson, who cracks the list for the second straight season.
Jackson wasn’t quite as productive as he was in 2018, though there’s little doubt he did his part to help create one of the conference’s stingiest front sevens, finishing the year with 38 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, four quarterback hurries, and 3.5 sacks. He’s also had some of his biggest games against the foes that matter most at the Academy over the past two seasons: In his last four games against Army and Navy, Jackson has racked up 29 total tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, and two sacks.
With a number of fellow Falcons having graduated for 2020, his track record of disruption will be integral to the Air Force defense as they reload up front.
