Jonathan Alder High School senior Will Jackson signs his letter of intent to compete in track and field at Muskingum University: (front row, from left) Will’s mother, Beth; Will; Will’s father, Dave; (back row) Gastin Green, Jonathan Alder track and field throws coach; Will’s brothers, Reed and Ben; and Justin Creps, Jonathan Alder’s head track coach.
Muskingum is a member of NCAA Div. III and competes in the Ohio Athletic Conference. Will said he chose Muskingum because it has strong programs for the two majors he is considering, one of which is exercise science, and new athletic facilities that will allow him to train year-round. His goal is to become a two-time All-American in discus.
