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.
