Jackson closes season with win over Seckman
Jackson's football team overcame a slow start to end its season on a winning note, beating visiting Seckman 21-6 Friday night.
The Indians finished with a 7-3 record. Earlier in the year, Jackson won the SEMO North Conference title at 3-0. Seckman fell to 2-8.
"We've got a lot of seniors and I feel great for them to end with a win, because they've been a great bunch, and they worked their tails off," Jackson coach Carl Gross said. "We had a good year, and the way we dominated the conference was gratifying."
Jackson trailed 6-0 at halftime on two field goals, but the Indians dominated the second half.
The Indians scored early in the third quarter on Austin Bock's 10-yard run. Grant Ressel's PAT put Jackson ahead for good, 7-6.
Early in the fourth quarter, sophomore quarterback Rex Meyr scored on a 39-yard run. Ressel's PAT made it 14-6.
Jackson rounded out the scoring when Nathan Leoni returned an interception 33 yards for a touchdown. Ressel added the PAT.
Bock rushed for 107 yards on 21 carries.
