I interviewed senior Jackson Resurreccion about his goals for the off-season, what he listens to before a game, and more.
Ella: How long have you been playing football and how has it had an impact on your life?
Jackson: I haven’t played many years; this will be my fourth and final year with the Warriors. It’s impacted my life a lot. Not like just playing the sport and you know catching balls and whatever and running around but the brotherhood and teamwork aspect that you learn from it. And all the people you meet and the friends that you make, it’s kind of really altered pretty much everything around football in my life.
Ella: What’s the best play you’ve ever made?
Jackson: I don’t know what my best play is. I guess my most memorable play was my first year in TCW. I was playing JV all season and they put me on Varsity for one game against Kelly Catholic just like to return. We had a fake option where it was only me that would run it up and I had this pretty good spin move and the guy went flying. Everyone went kind of crazy so that was pretty exciting.
Ella: If you could play any other position, what would it be and why?
Jackson: Definitely a lineman because I feel like linemen don’t get enough credit and I want to experience what it’s like being that big and hitting that many people every single play.
Ella: Do you have a pregame playlist, and if you do, what’s on it?
Jackson: Yeah I actually have two. One’s a slow country music playlist and the other one’s more sad music because whenever I first started playing I would listen to sad music to get me into the mood to be like, “Man, everybody hates me I suck at football!” and so it’d be like “oh I’m gonna prove them wrong in the game” but now it’s just to relax myself if I’m getting anxious.
Ella: What are you looking forward to most this season?
Jackson: We just got done with 7 on 7 so it was really good how we worked all together like for passing and stuff so I’m excited to see how that translates on the field. And also watching the younger guys play like John Gill and Jeremiah Wilkins stepping up to big positions and Justin (his brother) I guess. And Noah Bailey. I’m excited for him; he’s a hard worker. I’m excited for him to step up.
Ella: After a game, where are you going out to eat and what are you ordering?
Jackson: I guess wherever the rest of the team goes. I’m not that hungry after games but I could always go for some big juicy meat type things.
Ella: What is your main goal for the off-season and how do you plan to achieve that goal?
Jackson: Definitely get bigger because I’m a little small. I mean it’d be nice to get faster and learn more things about football. Yeah so get bigger, learn more about defenses and getting through them and stuff.
