One West Mi Man Will Be On The Eagles Sideline For Super Bowl
A former West Michigan football star will be on the sideline of the Philadelphia Eagles at Super Bowl 57.
Almost Every Man's Dream Is To Go To The Super Bowl
The dream may start as a young boy or develop later in adulthood but I don't know too many men who haven't dreamed of going to the Super Bowl. I believe the child in the photo above is dreaming of celebrating in the endzone after scoring a touchdown in the Super Bowl, or it could be gas.
Many kids grow up wanting to play or coach in the big game, while others just hope to be in the stands someday watching the biggest game in sports. I'm sure there are plenty of young girls and women who share the same dream as well and would love the opportunity to be at the Super Bowl.
One West Michigan Man Will Be On The Eagles Sideline At The Super Bowl
His name is Tyree Jackson and that may be a familiar name to you if live in the Norton Shores area, especially if you had to play against him when he was the quarterback for Mona Shores Highs School.
During Jackson's Mona Shores High School career, he passed for nearly 4,500 yards and had 50 touchdowns. He had just over 8,100 total yards of offense with a 24-18 record and led the Sailors to their first-ever state title game that was played at Ford Field in his senior year. Check out some of his high school highlights in the video below:
Jackson spent his college career at the University of Buffalo. Jackson was a starter by his second year at the university and by 2018 became the MAC Offensive Player of the Year with a 10-4 season, a MAC East division title, and a bowl game appearance in the Dollar General Bowl.
Jackson decided to not play his senior year in order to pursue a career in the NFL. Jackson was signed by the Buffalo Bills as an undrafted free agent in 2019. Unfortunately, he was cut before the regular season started.
After leaving the Buffalo Bills, Jackson wound up getting drafted by the XFLs DC Defenders but didn't get much playing time as COVID-19 shut down the rest of the season.
In 2021, Jackson was picked up by the Philadelphia Eagles but not as a quarterback but as a tight end. In his first season, he wound up on the injured reserve list in September but did get some action later in the season. Late in the 2022 season, Jackson caught his first touchdown only to get injured later in the game that ended his season.
According to FOX 17, West Michigan's Tyree Jackson is in Arizona as we speak enjoying all the festivities a Super Bowl team could want. Unfortunately, he will not play in the Super Bowl but will be there on the sideline to root for his Philadelphia Eagles since he is listed as inactive for Super Bowl 57. If the Eagles win, Jackson is still eligible for a Super Bowl ring.
