  2019 PRESEASON CAA DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR (MEDIA/COACHES): Maurice Jackson, DL, Richmond,...This marks the second time in the last four years a Spider has earned the honor (David Jones, 2016) and the third Spider since 2009 to earn the preseason accolade (Eric McBride, 2009). Jackson earned First Team All-CAA honors last fall in his first year as a full-time starter on the defensive line. The Third Team All-American, Jackson moved to defensive end in 2018 and made the most of his opportunity, leading the CAA in sacks with 1.0 per game, finishing the regular season with 10 sacks in 10 games.

Jackson finished the year ranked eighth overall in the nation in sacks per game (1.0) and enters 2019 sixth in the nation among the top sack getters from last year. Additionally, only one other returning defensive lineman in the country averaged more sacks per game last season than Jackson. He led the CAA in tackles for loss at 15.0 and forced fumbles at 4.0. He finished his year with a stellar showing in the Spiders' Capital Cup victory over William & Mary, posting 2.5 sacks and forcing two fumbles against the Tribe. Even more impressive, Jackson accomplished all of this in his first season as a defensive end. He was originally recruited as a linebacker and moved to defensive tackle his sophomore season before shifting out to the edge last fall. - Richmond Football
