Former AFL receiver Frank Jackson serves as a reminder that Canton does not host the only Hall of Fame.
Jackson, who played for the Chiefs (aka Dallas Texans) and Dolphins in the early years of the American Football League, later graduated from the University of Miami Law School which led to a brilliant second career as an attorney in Texas.
Not just “another” attorney but a Hall of Fame attorney. Just a few weeks ago, he was inducted into the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association Hall of Fame.
“This is a once in a lifetime thing,” says the 79 year old Jackson. “It’s tantamount to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on a more regional scale.”
We at NFL Alumni salute an outstanding receiver, a role model citizen and a Hall of Fame attorney… Frank Jackson.
