Bernard Jackson, former CSU-Pueblo wide receiver, is entering his fourth season as the ThunderWolves’ wide receivers coach.
In his first season as the Pack’s receiving coach, CSU-Pueblo turned in its best season since the football program’s rebirth in 2008 in terms of receiving yardage, averaging 181.7 receiving yards per game. Also for the first time since the rebirth of the program, a CSU-Pueblo receiver garnered all-conference honors as both Paul Browning and Josh Sandoval earned All-RMAC distinction.
The 2012 season was even better as the team set school records for receiving yardage, averaging 238.2 yards per game, helping to make quarterback Ross Dausin into an All-American. The 2013 recieving core upped the anti and established a new record with 295.6 yards per game. Browning was named all-region and again the Pack had an All-American quarterback in Chris Bonner.
As a player for the ThunderWolves in 2010, Jackson led the ThunderWolves in receiving with 34 receptions for 453 yards, logging 721 all purpose yards during the season. His success came after a four-year hiatus from the game, last hitting the field as the starting quarterback at the University of Colorado in 2006.
A native of Corona, Calif. and a 2011 graduate of CSU-Pueblo, Jackson also received the ThunderWolves’ Fellowship of Christian Athletes Integrity Award in 2011. He is the father of one son, Jayden, and resides in Pueblo.
