Serbia: Kragujevac Wild Boars sign All Southern Conference RB Cam Jackson

Serbian champions, the Kragujevac Wild Boars, continue to focus on the running game with the signing of Cam Jackson from The Citadel (NCAA, Div. I, FCS).

The 6’2″, 205 lb, 25-year-old Jackson, a native of Mobile, Alabama, spent the 2019 season playing for the ODTU Falcons in the Turkish top league. He led the Falcons to the Turkish final where they lost to the Koc Rams 29-19. He was named team MVP after scoring 15 touchdowns (10 rushing, 1 throwing,1 receiving & 3 returning) in nine games. He also played cornerback grabbing three interceptions.

At the Citadel, he ended his career second in program history for yards per carry with an average of 7.44 yards per attempt (2,454 yards, 330 carries). He finished in the top 10 in program history in all-purpose yards (sixth, 3,851 yards), career 100-yard rushing games (Tied for seventh, 10) and career rushing yards (eighth, 2,454 yards).

Jackson explains why he signed with the Wild Boars:

“I had seen that Josh Quezada had played for the Wild Boars in 2018. We met playing each other in Turkey. He told me a lot of great things about the organization and how well he was treated. I know that they have been the Serbian National champions for the past four years. Also, they are a top 20 team in Europe. I expect for us to win the National Championship as well as become a top 5 team in CEFL. I also expect to show my skills to all of Europe as well as enjoy traveling around Europe as well.”

He was featured in an article by Jeff Hartsell in the Post and Courier.
