When DeSean Jackson signed with the Rams he not only will have a chance to help them on the field, he has reached out to help within the community. 

The former Long Beach Poly standout and his Foundation recently hosted a one-day camp at Cal Lutheran University. He hosted nearly 200 youth ages 8 to 18 on speed and agility drills. 

He is known as one of the fastest players in the NFL. 

“It’s about principles,” said the 14-year NFL veteran. Principles can take you a long way in life whether you’re a professional, a doctor or a lawyer, they can apply to whatever you do in life.”   

Jackson says one of the best things about his return to L.A. is his ability to be present and hands on with his teachings. He has the ability to look a kid in the eye to enforce his message. 

As far as the Rams he spoke of newly signed QB Mathew Stafford.  “I’m excited about him, he’s going to bring a lot to the table as a player and quarterback.” 

Jackson has high hopes for the season and year in all. This year’s Super Bowl will be played in Inglewood’s So- Fi Stadium. 

“I am not trying to get a head of myself or the team, but can you imagine playing the Super Bowl in your hometown, just think what that would be like.”
