Paul and Jakobi Jackson have much in common.
When Paul attended Central High School in the early 1980s he was, as his son Jakobi is now, a football star of considerable accomplishments.
Both of them scored several touchdowns as a running back and both played good defense. Paul did a lot of kicking and punting; Jakobi returned a lot of kicks and punts.

Football: South St. Paul overcomes turnovers to gain state tournament berth

Game slips away from Hill-Murray in fourth quarter
On an unseasonably chilly Halloween, the Hill-Murray Pioneers' trip to South St. Paul for the Section 4AAAA football finals proved to be a frightful nightmare.
Things started well for the Pioneers, who took advantage of the Packers' three fumbles and led the entire first half. But the Packers, winners of the Metro East Conference, got back on track late in the game for a 35-21 victory.

State berth on the line Friday at Mustang Stadium

When the Mounds View High School football team takes the field on Friday night, it will be playing in its eighth consecutive section final. The Mustangs won the first four in that streak, but are winless in the last three.
If Mounds View is to snap that losing streak and reach the state tournament this year, it needs to take care of a surprise opponent in Blaine. The Bengals were the No. 6 seed in Section 5-6A but upset third-seeded Centennial last week.
