The Tyson Jackson 101 event served as an open house for the new Southeast Community Center. Along with teammates Turk McBride and Tank Tyler, Jackson signed autographs and took pictures with kids from the Boys and Girls Club of Kansas City.
Jackson spoke with FOX4 - WDAF at the event as well. If you can watch video without your boss wondering why you're not working right now, then check below where I've posted the video courtesy of FOX4 - WDAF. For the rest of you, a transcript of the entire spot is below.
On the Tyson Jackson 101 Event:
Just coming back and giving something back to the community even though it's not the community I was raised in. It's different kids from around the inner-city who are growing up with some struggles and coming back and giving something back to those people is a blessing.
His schedule for the next month:
Well right now all the rookies are still training with the coaching staff. Still working out and running every morning. Thurday is our due date and we'll report back home from there. And once I get back home I'll get back to LSU and train with those guys to get ready for training camp.
Status of contract talks:
Well I haven't spoken to my agent yet but I should be getting in contact with him sometime this week and see where we are with the contract agreement. But so far I have no idea what's going on.
