Someone Named Their Kid Bo Jackson, And Now He Is Really Good At Football

A high school running back in Cleveland, Ohio named Bo Jackson is getting plenty of attention and it has nothing to do with his name. Although being named after the former two sport star probably doesn’t hurt.

The older Bo Jackson was an incredible athlete who played in both the NFL and MLB. He’s also a College Football Hall of Famer after an incredible college career at Auburn. The younger Jackson isn’t graduating from high school until 2025.

Being a high school freshman hasn’t stopped him from receiving multiple Division I offers already. The 5-foot-11 180 pound running back received his first offer back in May from Kentucky. In June he added two more. One from Ohio State and another one from Pittsburgh.

Jackson is excited by the early attention

Jackson is excited by the early attention and had this to say about the experience, “It’s been a lot. It feels really good and exciting because I wasn’t expecting to get an offer this early.”

The offers have come after Jackson visited the schools and participated in their camps. The coaches see a lot of potential in him already and really like his style of play.

Jackson currently attends Villa Angela-St. Joseph high school, a private school in Cleveland, Ohio. Like the original Bo Jackson, he plays baseball too. He’s playing with the Bobcat Baseball Club this summer.

Injuries cut his NFL career short and limited his incredible athletic abilities

If the younger Jackson can come anywhere close to what the older Jackson was able to do on the field he’ll put together a nice career for himself.

At Auburn the the 59-year-old Jackson ran for 4,303 career yards. That mark is fourth best performance in Southeastern Conference history. He also set a record with an average of 6.6 yards per carry during his career with the Tigers.

Injuries cut his NFL career short and limited his incredible athletic abilities. Even so, he played four seasons in the NFL, rushed for 2,782 yards and 16 touchdowns. He also played for eight seasons in the MLB, hit .250 with 141 home runs and 415 RBIs.
