Ajax Recaps Playing Career

Good article from the Surf Kentucky web site on 26-year old Albert Jackson.

Turns out that Jackson is playing in China now, and has been playing there for four years.  Jackson told the Madisonville, Kentucky Lions Club group that he started playing in China right out of college back in 2010, when he had $50 to his name.

After not making the sixth-grade basketball team, the well-traveled Jackson has now played professionally in China, Argentina, Uruguay, Venezuela, Holland, Kuwait and Ecuador. He plans to keep playing until he reaches the age of 30.


As Chronicles readers likely remember, Jackson played center for the UGA basketball squad, laboring through various injuries, an off-court problem or two, and the coaching change from Felton to Fox.  The 6' 10" lefty came up big to help lead the Dawgs to its amazing SEC "Tornado Tournament" win.
