“We’re so excited that Sky was able to receive a scholarship,” said Acorn Tigers head basketball coach and father, Mike Jackson. “Sky wants to go to the Junior College to develop the skills he already possesses and then plans to transfer to a four-year university.”
“This is a great accomplishment,” said Sky’s mother, Becky Jackson. “We’re really proud of him and look forward to what the future holds for Sky.”
Sky was named All-District 1A-7 West, All-State in 1A, named to the 1A All-State Tournament Team, and will represent the Tigers in the 1A All-Star Basketball Game, as a member of the West Team. The All-Star game is comprised of players from every classification throughout the state, not just 1A. The All-Star game is scheduled to be played on June 25th in Conway, Arkansas.
