Syracuse football wide receiver Trishton Jackson has established himself as a true star. Here are all the details on his latest accolade and future.
Rarely do things ever live up to the hype.
You’ll see a really cool movie trailer months in advance, you build it up, the media builds it up, then you see the movie and it’s a dud.
Heading into the 2019 Syracuse football season much was made of the Michigan State transfer at wideout Trishton Jackson.
He comes from a blue blood program, Trishton had the measurables, but didn’t have the collegiate production. What would he do in an offense led by Dino Babers?
All of those questions and some were answered on Saturday afternoon in the loud house.
Jackson ran the full route tree displaying speed, 50-50 ability to go get the ball, and YAC (yards after catch/contact) taking a short screen pass all the way to the house.
On the day Trishton had his second 100-yard receiving game of the season (141 yards), caught six passes, and scored two long touchdowns from 59 and 46 yards out respectively.
His performance was so impressive vs Western Michigan in Week 4, that he has received ACC Wide Receiver of the Week honors, per the official press release.
Currently, Trishton ranks fourth in the conference in receiving yards per game (83.8) and is in a tie for fourth place in the ACC with four touchdown catches a month into the season.
Back during the spring game in March the connection between Tommy DeVito and Trishton was obvious, but who could’ve guessed it would blossom into this so quickly.
Each year of Dino Babers tenure at Syracuse, a receiver has stepped up to the plate as the lead beneficiary of the Orange is the New Fast offense, it appears Trishton is next in line to continue that rich tradition.
