A three-year letterwinner in baseball and men’s soccer, Bill Jackson was one of the leaders in building a strong foundation for both programs. As a pitcher, Jackson had a stellar career that has withstood the test of time. His 2.67 ERA ranks sixth and is tied for first in complete games with 24 to go along with his tie for second with four shutouts. In 1960, he put up the eighth-best ERA in school history at 1.96 in 11 complete games, which is tied for the most in a single season. He was named team captain and MVP, earning all-conference honors in the Florida Intercollegiate Conference. On the soccer field, Jackson was equally dominant at the right fullback position. He was named co-captain and earned all-conference honors in leading JU to the conference championship in 1960.
