Miami Valley Silverbacks Strengthen D-LineMarch 12, 2010 - Continental Indoor Football League (CIFL) Dayton Silverbacks
The Silverbacks also inked 6'03" 260 pound St. Louis, MO product of Southern University, James Jackson. Jackson recently spurned offers from Montreal and Hamilton of the CFL to stay in the states with his children. Wells commented, "when I spoke with Mr. Jackson back in January about playing for us, he was leaning on signing with Montreal. When I spoke with him earlier this week, I made the call just to see where he was at in his decision making process. He said being away from his children for six months is not something he wanted to do and asked if the offer was still on the table. We met Wednesday after work at McDonalds went over the playbook and signed the paperwork. Adding a player of this calibur to go along side Shepard and Crawford is a coaches dream." Crawford will be the third defensive lineman to go along with Shepard and Jackson as they go up against the Cincinnati Commandos Saturday. Derrick Crawford is 6'03" 290 pound out of Texas A&M Commerce. He played two seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals and in the Arena Football League with the Las Vegas Gladiators and Orlando Predators.
