    Valley’s Jackson commits to Boston College

    Harrison Jackson can turn his full focus to academics and his upcoming senior season at Loudoun Valley High School after verbally accepting a scholarship offer earlier this summer to attend and play football at Boston College.

    Jackson, a 6-foot-2, 181-pound wide receiver, impressed the Eagles’ coaching staff with his play during a Boston College camp in June - leading to the scholarship offer. 

    “Harrison is a great person, first and foremost. I think that was a big factor in Boston College’s offer,” Loudoun Valley coach Danny McGrath said. “He is a young man who has plenty of potential and competitive drive that will make him successful at the next level.”

    Jackson caught 30 passes for 329 yards and six touchdowns in his junior season. He hauled in three receptions for 69 yards and a score in a 27-9 playoff victory over Stafford, helping the Vikings record their first postseason win since 1990.

    “We are happy to have him as part of our program, I can assure you of that. And I know the coaches at BC will feel the same way once they get him on campus next summer,” McGrath said. “We look forward to Harrison having a great year for Loudoun Valley to propel him to a great college career.”

    Boston College competes in the Division I Atlantic Coast Conference. The school’s campus is about seven miles west of Boston in Chestnut Hill, Mass.

    Harrison and his Viking teammates kick off the 2011 season Aug. 26 at home versus Fauquier.
