This is a sad Super Bowl Sunday. Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson died in a car crash on the I-70 this morning. A drunk driver supposedly hit Jackson, causing the death.

The Colts signed Jackson, 26, in 2016, and ever since, he has been a solid depth piece for the Colts. With the poor linebacking play last season, Jackson may have had the opportunity to start next season. He brought a positive attitude to a locker room where positivity was so scarce, and was a man that everyone loved and respected.
Our thoughts and prayers here at FPC go out to Jackson and his family. Remember, please, do not drink and drive.
