Right smack dab in the middle of it all. That’s precisely where Mooresville High School football player Ryan Jackson likes to be. It likes him back. The senior inside middle linebacker for the Blue Devils, who also sees some limited duty as an offensive tight end, played a pivotal part in helping the Devils’ defensive unit register its second shutout of the season so far during a 30-0 silencing of Kannapolis’ A.L. Brown. As a result of his efforts, Jackson is also the school’s athlete of the week. Making the personalized plaque presentation is Ben Goins Jr., with yearlong program sponsor Randy Marion Automotive.
