2021 Fulshear Charger athlete Jackson Edge is very busy these days as he plays football, basketball and baseball for Fulshear High School of Fulshear, Texas.
Edge is a quarterback and wide receiver on the football team, a point guard on the basketball team and centerfielder on the baseball team.
“I think playing all the sports that I play helps me stay ready. There are a lot more opportunities if you play more than one sport,” he said
He plays varsity basketball and baseball and is looking to get moved up to the varsity squad in football as a junior next fall.
“I love watching football just as much as playing it. I like seeing what I can improve on every day. I’m just trying to make my mom proud and give back to her because she has done so much for me to be where I’m at today.”
He credits his parents for pushing him to be the best student-athlete he can be. He realized he could be a good athlete when he started getting recognition for his effort. Being a three-sport athlete helps him get prepared mentally for college workouts.
The 6’2, 160 pound, Fulshear native doesn’t have any scholarship offers as of now but took a visit to Texas A&M April 1. He has received a good number of camp invites and plans to attend them. He has his eye on Auburn, Texas A&M, Oregon, Georgia and LSU going into his junior year.
As a football player, he has a good pocket presence. He throws on the run well and is accurate with his throws. As a wide receiver, his size helps in the red zone. Working on his speed and quickness more could help at both positions. Check out some of his football highlights.
As a basketball player, his ability to shoot the ball is impressive. He has a nice jump shot which helps there and when he drives to the basket, more often than not he scores.
“I would say the best part of my game in football is having patience and elusiveness with the ball in my hand. I’m also a great passer in my opinion. For basketball, I’m a tremendous shooter. I’ve always been a top three shooter on every AAU team I’ve been on. For baseball, I’m a good contact and power hitter and I can play the field very well,” he said.
Jackson Edge wants to get his 40 yard dash time up to a 4.5 flat and weigh in at 185 pounds before next football season. He believes he can bring great athleticism and skill set to a university. Also, a good teammate in the locker room and a good person off the field as well.
As a junior, he wants to win a state title and earn scholarship offers. When his time is all said and done at Fulshear High School, he wants to be known as one of the best athletes to play there.
