Defensive lineman Dylan Jackson will play football at Harding University this fall. Jackson was named a captain of the 2020 Lions Football Program and has been a varsity starter on the defensive line for three years. In 2020, Jackson was a two-way starter on both the defensive and offensive lines. In 2019, Jackson was named 1st Team All-District, 2nd Team All-State and Academic All-State. In 2020, he was named 1st Team All-District, 1st Team All-State and Academic All-State. He was also named Dave Campbell’s Texas Football Scholar Athlete of the Week.
“Dylan Jackson is not only one of the best defensive linemen, but one of the best players to ever compete here at PCA,” said Cunningham, who also serves as Varsity Football Head Coach. “He was a dominant force for opponents to face on the field and as a leader on our team, he was an inspiration and example of what a Lion football player looks like! He does not compartmentalize excellence. It exists in every part of his life! We are grateful for the legacy he has left with our program.”
