REC/LB Jameson: “My brother was the reason I started to play football”

Douglas Jameson has been suiting up for football games for 10 years and a family member’s influence led him to the gridiron.

“My brother was the reason I started to play football because I wanted to be exactly like him,” Douglas said.

He has a slew of significant accomplishments during his career: 3x Provincial Champion 2013-2015 with South Delta Rams, 2015 Starbowl Offensive Player of the Game, made Team BC for Canada Cup 2017 and BC Provincial Flag Champion 2017. And his stats for Grade 11 were: 707 receiving yards, six receiving TDs, 145 rushing yards and two rushing TDs.

There are various reasons why Douglas enjoys playing his position.

“The thing I like most about receiver is the catch and run situations, trying to make a play out of nothing and of course scoring touchdowns,” he said. “My edge as a player is my competitiveness and my concentration on catching the ball.”

A memorable moment for him occurred during training camp a year after he won his first provincial title.

“One of my coaches said, ‘I’m already ordering a ring that says three-peat on it,’ and after winning the third straight championship, I went up to him and said, ‘Aren’t you glad you ordered that ring a year ago?’”

As far as influences go, his brother is No. 1.

“My brother is the most influential person in my life because I tell him everything and he helps as much as possible and it’s great to know that I’ll always have him around and we think the same on the football field,” Douglas said. “When I get the ball in my hands, he’s thinking the exact same thing as me.”

Douglas looks up to Julian Edelman of the New England Patriots.

“He plays slot like me, he’s shifty, he can turn a hook or a bang out into a massive gain, he’s very competitive and has a great relationship with the quarterback,” he said.

The recruitment process has been “slow and developing” for him. He’s keeping his options and doesn’t have any specific schools at the top of his list. But he knows that he wants to play for as long as he can and eventually reach the pros.

On the education side of things, Douglas wants to major in business at university. When he reaches university football, his personal expectations for his freshman year are to “bulk up a bit and help in any way possible.” Douglas also thinks that his game will “transfer over pretty well.”

“I’m going to work on lateral quickness and route running just to gain separation,” Douglas said.

He is eagerly awaiting the upcoming season.

“The thing I’m most looking forward to this season is seeing if my team can win it all,” Douglas said. “I have my eyes on the prize every year, but I think this year is special. Individually speaking, I’m hoping for a great statistical season and trying to make the CFC100 to get noticed more across the country.”

Football is the centre of his universe.

“Ever since I was seven, I wanted to play professional football and I don’t want to give up on a dream,” he said.
