GO-TO GUY

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — Even as a freshman, Fields noticed Jackson’s ability to do whatever was needed of. If there was something asked of him he couldn’t do, the coach knew he’d work to learn it.

“He’s our leader out there and the hardest worker in practice,” Fields said.”

Fellow junior Brian Thomas has taken over much of the ball-handling responsibilities this season, leaving Jackson room to focus on scoring. Their new roles — along with fellow junior Andrew Adamson’s increased scoring and rebounding presence — have led the Patriots to a 3-3 record early this season.

They’ll next play in the Lions Club Tournament, starting Thursday, before kicking off a tough Monsignor Martin Athletic Association schedule, which includes Western New York powers St. Joe’s and Canisius.
