2019: Redshirted

2018: Started in 45 games with 48 appearances as a true freshman, the most starts and appearances of any ETSU freshman ... Named to the All-Southern Conference freshman team after batting .279 with 48 hits, seven doubles, three homers, 32 runs, 22 RBI and a .399 on-base percentage ... Three weeks into the season, Jackson ranked second in the NCAA in on-base percentage at .630 while batting as high as .444 seven games into the year ... Remained above .300 all the way into April through 84 official at-bats ... Had 12 multi-hit games for ETSU, including a four-hit showing vs. Western Carolina ... Came up with the biggest hit of his young career at WCU, homering in the ninth inning to secure a 14-12 win in Cullowhee ... Led the team with 15 hit-by-pitches in 2018 ... Rode an 11 game hit streak and 20 game on-base streak — the third longest on the team ... Batted in the top two spots of the order in 24 of his 45 starts, mostly starting in left field ... Proved to be the jack of all trades when making spot starts at right field (1), second base (1) and backing up Jackson Greer as a catcher (15).
