Maurice Jackson Resigns With Raiders

April 27, 2009 - Indoor Football League (IFL) - Rochester Raiders News Release

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (April 27, 2009) - Today the Rochester Raiders re-signed veteran standout wide receiver Maurice Jackson. Jackson, a Section V product that played at Marshall High School before moving on to play at Syracuse University will rejoin the Raiders for his 4th season. Jackson is the Raiders franchise leader in every receiving category and will join an already high-powered Raiders offense led by Quarterback Omar Baker and Wide Receivers Chris Carter and Rob Mager. Jackson has been sidelined thus far this season due to an injury sustained during the Raiders 2008 season.

"Moe is a phenomenal player," commented Raiders co-owner Bob Bartosiewicz. "We are excited to have him back and excited that he is completely healthy, for a while it was up in the air if he would be able to return this season but the doctors gave him the go ahead a couple of weeks ago and we are looking forward to seeing number one back out there on the field. I know all of our players are anxious to have Moe back out there as well."

The Raiders will travel to Maryland this weekend to play against divisional rival the Maryland Maniacs. With a win the Raiders will move up to second place in the Atlantic Division. The Raiders will then return home on May 16 for another divisional game against the first place River City Rage.
