Jackson loudly introduced himself to the larger baseball world in
2010, starting for Rancho Bernardo High School (a.k.a. “The
Factory), one of the most storied high school programs in the
country, as a freshman. He hit .376-5-27 with 15 doubles as a 15 year
old in the spring of 2011, then topped that by hitting .400-17-36 as
a sophomore in 2012.
stole the show as an underclassman at the 2012 Area Code Games, going
6-for-7 with five extra base hits, the final one a laser triple off
the center field fence that hit the cement wall at Blair Field and
rebounded half way back to the infield. Yes, the balls were juiced at
that event, but Jackson hit the ball as hard as is humanly possible
for 16 year old just about every time up.
