PASCO, Wash. -- As the AFL closed its doors for the 2009 season, a number of players dreams of playing in the top arena league were dashed at least until the 2010 season. Lineman Johnny Jackson played for the Tri-Cities Fever last season. Then, he signed a contract to play with the Grand Rapids Rampage of the AFL.
But because he never actually played in the AFL, Jackson can play for an af2 team again this season. He has talked with the Fever but is still weighing his options. But, he says is pretty sure he wants to play.
Jackson says, "It wouldn't be me if I was to sit out the whole season. I wouldn't be the same Johnny. I am more than likely leaning towards playing once again. I have to make sure it's the best thing for me and my family. I think this is another learning experience, something else to make me a little stronger."
