    Grandson of Gator great wide receiver, Willie Jackson, and wears his grandfather's number.22. He made one heck of a catch in the 4th quarter against Eastern Washington and deserves kudos for it! I know he made grandpa proud!

    Prattvile, AL-Go Lions!
    Great story. Grandpa Willie has to be in his 70's.

    Wow I didn’t realize that! I had a class with Willie Jr in 1993.

    Impressive Gator family.

    When I went to Spring Game and subsequently the Utah game…I thought both times he looked great in warmup drills. Of course…I defer to the judgement of our coaches..but then he makes a catch like that! Idk sometimes…I would play any of our LBers (especially Black ahead of Burney) Also, Wright would be exclusively a pass catcher with Linguard soaking up his snaps. But hey…just my opinion. Lol. I love Napier so far and I think he will get it figured out soon.

    Yeah . . . Shane Matthews was talking about it a lot on the radio and even got their names mixed-up a time or two. LOL! :)

    I had ENC1102 with Willie Jr in spring of '90. Andrea Farley (#1 ranked tennis player in the country) sat next to me in that class also.

    That catch definitely got my attention. He keeps doing stuff like that, they won't be able to keep him off the field.

    In the off-season players talked about khaleil and Burke being the unstoppable players. Almost every player said those 2 dudes were unstoppable. Willie and Terry were both gamers not practice players… they need to give him a shot

    I'm so old I remember when Coach Ray Graves recruited "Grandpa" Willie back in 1969.
