Stanley Jackson (born March 24, 1975) is a retired American football quarterback who played in the Canadian Football League and Continental Indoor Football League. He was also the Co-Owner of the CIFL's Marion Mayhem.

College career

Jackson played college football for the Ohio State Buckeyes, where he alternated with Joe Germaine as the quarterback position. He was part of the 1996-1997 team that won the 1997 Rose Bowl.[1][2][3]

Professional career

Montreal Alouettes

In 1999 and 2000, Jackson was given that chance to play quarterback. Though this time it was with the Montreal Alouettes in the CFL. In two seasons, Jackson completed 50 of 90 passes for 679 yards with 1 touchdown and 3 interceptions.

Toronto Argonauts

In 2001 and 2002, Jackson had moved on to the Toronto Argonauts. He saw significantly less playing time, completing 14 of only 22 attempts for 2 touchdowns and 3 interceptions.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers

After sitting out all of 2003 with a knee injury, Winnipeg Blue Bombers gave Jackson a chance to play quarterback again in 2004. He completed only 4 passes on 12 attempts for 67 yards.[4]

Marion Mayhem

After retiring for two years, Jackson had his eye caught by the Marion Mayhem. The Mayhem played in the newly formed, Continental Indoor Football League, which was looking to become a promising league, with its steady expansion. Citing that he missed the game, after sitting out, Jackson tried out, and made the Mayhem squad. He was also part owner in the low budget league. He went on to have 3 successful seasons with the Mayhem, guiding them to 6-6, 7-5, and 9-3 records.[5] He owns two CIFL records, Passing competitions in a season (177) and passing attempts in a season (348).[6]

Post retirement

Jackson is currently the color analyst for the Ohio State Buckeyes pre-game and post-game radio show on WTVN in Columbus, Ohio. He is married to Ronita "Myricks" Jackson and currently has 4 children (Stanley Jackson Jr., Ronald Jackson, and Tre' Major Jackson, Jazmine Jackson), and currently lives in Marion, Ohio.[1] Jackson has also been appointed by Ohio Governor John Kasich to the Ohio State Board of Education, an action which has created some controversy in Ohio among some educators who have voiced doubt that Jackson has the appropriate credentials for the position.[7]
