Catching up with: Michael Jackson
The Seahawks have traveled to San Diego to take on the Chargers in their third preseason game of the year, a game that will see the starters get the most playing time of the preseason.
NFL Media's Elliot Harrison ranks the best 50 players to draft in upcoming fantasy football drafts.
It was family day here at the VMAC as the Seahawks had their last practice of the week before heading to San Diego tomorrow for a preaseon matchup against the Chargers on Saturday.
"Turnover Thursday" was the motto for Wednesdays practice of preseason week 3 in preparation for the San Diego Chargers.
What he did: The former All-Pac-8 linebacker from University of Washington and all-state linebacker from Pasco High School played eight seasons for the Seahawks (1979-86) after being a third-round draft choice. Jackson led the team in tackles for three consecutive seasons (1980-82) and started 78 games. “I retired because my kids were starting to be fun, and my knees were starting to ache,” he said.
What he’s doing: Now 54, Jackson was a broadcaster for one season with NBC after he retired and then moved to Los Angeles briefly to pursue an acting career. But he moved back to the Seattle area after only six months because, as he put it, “There were dog-eat-dog people down there.” He works for Diamond Parking, in their real estate division. He and his wife, Kathy, have three sons – Christopher, Justin, and Marshall; a daughter – Donnall; and eight grandchildren. “Everybody is doing well, and everybody is happy,” he said.
If I could have dinner with anyone – living or dead – it would be: “My wife.”
Must-see TV: “My favorite TV show? I don’t watch TV.”
The best book I’ve ever read: “There’s only a couple (laughs). So it has to be The Bible.”
You don’t say
My best memory as a Seahawks was: “It was a 1981 Monday night game against the San Diego Chargers where we beat them like 44-23.”
Something most people don’t know about me: “I’m very shy. Nobody knows that.”
If I could relive one day in my life, it would be: “Probably today. I don’t look back. No need to.”
