Player Bio

Jackson Bardall has a noticeable presence on the offensive line. Standing tall at 6-4 and weighing 310 pounds, he is a force to be reckoned with. Yet his size is not the only part of his game that has attracted attention of college scouts. Bardall features great athleticism and flexibility that makes him an overall package at offensive tackle. This has drawn the intrigue of Clemson and Tennessee among other schools in obtaining the talents of the junior. As a sophomore, he was a key cog to a North Forsyth team in 2013. Their offense averaged 198.5 rushing yards per contest helping to reach the first round of the state playoffs. North Forsyth head coach Jason Galt praises his offensive tackle for his team-first attitude. Bardall has developed a great reputation among teammates for his drive to go above and beyond what is demanded. He has also been a vocal and emotional leader for the Raiders. Aside from football, Bardall has found success on the mats as a wrestler. Last season, the multi-sport star wrestled to a fourth place finish in Area 6-AAAAAA at the heavyweight class. He also competes on a successful North Forsyth bass-fishing squad that has won the state championship for the last two years. Athletics are not the only thing that define Bardall as he is active in youth sports. He regularly referees pee-wee football and spent time over the last summer as a baseball umpire. While all of the attention being given by Division I schools would get to the head of most high school players, the junior has maintained a steady demeanor and focused on his real purpose of going to college, obtaining an education. Bardall aspires to work in the field of physical therapy and hopes to make an impact on lives of others after his football career finishes.
