And that drinking and driving is something that all of us endeavor to prevent, so that families aren't affected by it like Edwin Jackson's is right now.

Coach Saturnio has it right. (Coach Saturnio is on Jeff Monken's staff at Army and was at Georgia Southern when EJ started on the team, he was also probably one of the coaches that were at the "heart" of the team)

I never dreamed a President of the United States would tweet condolences to the death of a former Georgia Southern football player.

Now don't misinterpret me and think I'm saying it puts us on the map, I'm just saying it feels strange.

I think everyone can agree that this has been surreal.

RE: Georgia Southern's Edwin Jackson dead at 26 by drunk driver
and texting in driving a teenager almost plowed into me in a subdivision was on the wrong side of the road headed right at me around a corner with her phone in her face....unbelievable...I always honk at morons with their phones in their hands while driving. If you are one of those people stop please.

As far as Pence he is from the state and was probably familiar with the players on the Colts.

Yes, but he wouldn't tweet about it at all had it not been an illegal immigrant in the other vehicle. Typical politician making light of an issue they actually don't care about to appease to a voting base.

The real conversation should be about drunk driving in general. There's got to be a better way to stop it. Right now, punishment does not fit the crime.

And no one has claimed Trump cares, just that it's unbelievable the President of the United States tweeted specifically about a former player.

I'd agree it's crazy that he did, but it's not because he's particularly concerned about Edwin Jackson, it's just ammunition for him.

He cares a US citizen died senselessly due to lack of basic enforcement of basic laws. Obviously he did not know Edwin but that does not mean he does not care. Breathe into a bag skins and chill.

Ammunition or confirmation of his and about half the country's beliefs? He was a NFL player and the story was all over the media of course if he was a plumber nobody would have known about it. The knee jerk cynicism of every thing he does and says is equally disgusting. Before becoming Pres he has had a long track record of charity and service now he is Satan...go figure.

Oh come on. 37K people die every year in car accidents and he picked this one to Tweet about? Has he tweeted about any of the others? There is an odds-on chance they happen in DC or elsewhere that he's heard about. You know, as well as everyone else, it was being used to rile the base. (As he sat in Mar-A-Lago, on our dime, at his hypocritical pay to play Super Bowl Party)

RIP Poundcake

Nicknamed Poundcake because of this:

http://www.espn.com/blog/arizona-cardina...pound-cake

Being an Atlanta native, Arizona Cardinals inside linebacker Edwin Jackson knows a little Southern hospitality can go a long way.

So, he knew what might help him when he missed a flight to Arizona for a pre-draft workout with the Cardinals: Pound cake, of course.

Here’s the story: He was supposed to take a weekend flight to Phoenix from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport, notorious for being one of the busiest in the country. After missing his flight by just a few minutes because the inter-terminal tram took too long, Jackson did the only thing he could think of: He called his mom, Mary Ellen Powell Jackson. She calmed the former Georgia Southern star down and told him to call the Cardinals coaches. He did and the team booked him a new flight later in the day.

But panic set in as his Southern upbringing started to shine through.

"I can’t go empty-handed," he said was one of his first thoughts. "It’s disrespectful to show up late and not have anything."

So, Jackson’s mother made a fresh batch of her now-famous pound cake from scratch and brought it to the airport.

The Indianapolis Colts are doing their best to ensure Edwin Jackson is not forgotten.

Colts owner and CEO Jim Irsay announced Monday a $25,000 gift to establish the Edwin Jackson Memorial Scholarship, in honor of the Colts linebacker who was killed after being hit by a suspected drunken driver on Feb. 4. Irsay also sent condolences to the family of 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe, the Uber driver who was also killed in the accident.

If anyone would like to make a donation in Edwin's honor: http://edwinjackson53.com/

His family is asking to donate to his foundation in lieu of flowers. The Edwin Jackson 53 foundation helps under-served children and non-scholarship athletes reach their potentials without having to financially struggle.

Quote:STATESBORO - Georgia Southern head football coach Chad Lunsford announced Thursday that the walk-on tryouts for the program moving forward will be named in honor of Edwin Jackson, who died Feb. 4 in an auto accident in Indianapolis. Jackson went through the tryout process at GS to earn a spot on the team and worked his way up to eventual starter before moving on to start in the NFL with the Indianapolis Colts.

"In memory of Edwin Jackson and the mark that he left in so many peoples lives, we wanted to take the first step in honoring him by naming our walk-on tryouts after him," Lunsford said. "Edwin went down the hardest path possible here at Southern to earn some unbelievable results. He went from a walk-on tryout participant, to a spot on the team, to playing time, to a starter and leader and finally, a captain and Sun Belt champion. He then did it all again, signing as an NFL undrafted free agent, earned a spot on an NFL roster and then regular playing time before finally earning a job as a starter. His work ethic exemplified the blue collar mentality that made him the perfect fit at Georgia Southern. Not only did he accomplish these things, but he also was an unbelievable person who demonstrated our core values. The ultimate servant leader, he affected so many lives in a positive manner. I want to give a big thank you to his family for allowing us the to honor Edwin Jackson by naming our walk-on tryouts after him."


Great decision by Coach Lunsford.. very fitting tribute.

I guess it’s a good tribute. I’ve never heard of naming a walk-on program.
