Jackson Lewis’ football experience has been phenomenal to date as he has come to love the game and loves connecting with his teammates.

Whether he is playing for his high school, the Resurrection Phoenix, or in the Ontario Football Conference (OFC) with the Twin Cities Predators, his teammates have always been an inspiration to him and he hopes that they look at him as a leader and dedicated football player.

During his time on the field he Jackson has won a District 8 Championship with the Phoenix, and was named 2015 Offensive Player of the Year for the Predators.

“My goals for the Ontario Prospect Challenge (OPC) are to have more scouts and people from across Ontario notice my passion and talent for football,” said Jackson.

“My overall goal is to win MVP for Team West,” added the Predator. “I believe that hard work and focus will help me achieve this goal.”

Moreover, during the offseason Jackson trains with his friends at the gym and they do weight lifting and cardio to help improve their football skills.

They all train with Adrian Thorne, who is a great trainer and motivates them to do more and to do better each and every day they go there.

On the field, his football idol is Terrell Owens because he loves the way he played the receiver position.

“Throughout his career he played football aggressively,” added Jackson. “I do my best to model myself after him.”

The Predator liked the way Owens tried to get into the heads of the defensive players. He was also intimidating and opponents were always keyed on him, as he was the focus and threat of the game.

In life, his role model is his dad, Winston Lewis, because to this day he has taught him how to be the best person he can be in life and the best player he can be on the field.

“I love to play football because it has taught me that life is like football, you live for the thrill and with hard work you can achieve the goals you have set out for yourself, and that’s how I look at football,” commented Jackson.

The other reason he loves football is the connection he has with his teammates and the mutual respect for his opponents.

“I love that you can have friends that don’t even live in the same city as you but can still connect to each other from football because it brings people together,” explained the Predator.
