Blizzard Sign DB Donovan Jackson

The Green Bay Blizzard are excited to announce the signing of former Morgan State DB Donovan Jackson.

The Junior College All-American defensive back for Jeff Linder at Minnesota West, Jackson (5'10, 180) had five interceptions – two of which were returned for a touchdown – along with 17 pass break-ups and three kickoff return touchdowns for the Blue Jays. Jackson went on to be named an all-conference and all-region performer. Jackson comes from a decorated prep career at Loyola (Mich.) High School, earning all-state and all-conference honors. Donovan was considered one of nation's top return specialists as senior, playing in All-American Bowl. Jackson also Loyola as the school-record holder in the 100m dash.

A broken hand didn't stop him from making 30 tackles in his junior season with Austin Peay and then went on to record 15 tackles, three pass breakups, and 2 interceptions in his senior season with Morgan State.

Jackson looks to bring his aggressive and instinctive play to Green Bay's backfield this season with the Blizzard.
