As much as it sucks to go back and watch this play, I know laugh (sometimes) because of the announcer’s voice crack. A voice crack for the ages. Sounds like the guy splooged right in his pants as soon as Watts-Jackson crossed the goal line. Anyways, back to the main point.
I’ve hated Jalen Watts-Jackson for the past couple of years. Now, I respect him. I’ll never forgive him for scoring that touchdown, but I can thank him for serving our country.
Fun fact: Jalen broke his hip on that play. How crazy is that?
Watts-Jackson was heading into his Redshirt Senior season, and requested a release so he could be free to play his final season of football somewhere else. Instead, he’s decided to go ahead and start his career in the military.
“With everything that is going on in the country, everyone has their different views of the people who lead this country,” Watts-Jackson told WJBK Fox 2 Detroit. “But I feel that the soldiers, the people who go out and fight for this country, show the true character of this country.”
“I would like to keep that going, show people I love this country and show it is a good place and has great people in it.”
Thank you for your service, Jalen. I’ll never forgive you for scoring that touchdown.
