SPOKANE, Wash. — After a long journey that included two seasons on the “C team” and being cut by the Tigers, Lewis & Clark Senior Teddy Jackson has earned his way onto the varsity basketball team.

Jackson says he doesn’t have a lot of natural basketball skills but wants to out-work everyone else.  It’s that drive that has him suiting up for the Tigers his Senior season.

Toughness and work ethic is nothing new for Jackson who is an accomplished boxer, but being a part of the team at L.C. is a pretty special feeling.
