Baseball -- Jordan Jackson
May 15, 2017



ROCHESTER, Mich. -- Baseball player Jordan Jackson has been named Oakland Student Athlete of the Week for the week of May 8-14 after delivering a walk-off homer against Youngstown State.

Jackson, a sophomore from Chicago, Ill., came in to pinch-hit in the bottom of the ninth inning with two outs as the Golden Grizzlies trailed the Penguins 5-4 with a spot on the Horizon League Tournament on the line. Jackson lifted a 2-0 fastball to right field that sailed over the fence for a three-run homer to win the game as Oakland swept YSU on May 14 in a doubleheader.

With the pair of wins, Oakland (15-35, 11-16 HL) secured a spot in the Horizon League Tournament beginning May 24 and will close out the regular season with a three-game series at home against Northern Kentucky May 18-20.
