NEWSWIRE: RB on comeback trail, eyes WSU

THE CALIFORNIA RUNNING BACK had a standout senior season at Laguna Creek High last fall, rushing for 2,305 yards.

Don Jackson ranks as one of his all-time great players, says Mark Nill, who has coached at Laguna Creek for more than 15 years. Jackson (5-9, 175), however, also struggled when away from the field.

But he looks to have gotten himself back on track, and on a path that could well lead him to Washington State.
