09/04/13 - Andrew Jackson is invading Knoxville on Saturday. Not the hero of the Battle of New Orleans, but a hero of last Saturday’s battle at LP Field. Tennessee coach Butch Jones used his microphone several times in Tuesday’s practice to invoke Western Kentucky’s middle linebacker Andrew Jackson as a motivational ploy. Once, Jones informed UT linebacker A.J. Johnson that he’d “get to play on the same field as an NFL linebacker.’’ Later, Jones announced he’d have to find a white football because his son Alex “wants Andrew Jackson’s autograph.” Jackson is a 6-foot-1, 257-pound senior from Lakeland, Fla. He correctly predicted that the Hilltoppers would “handle” Kentucky last weekend in Nashville.
“He’s a great player,” said UT center James Stone. “He’s a talented guy. He’s somebody you have to game-plan for.” Tailback Rajion Neal, coming off a 141-yard first half against Austin Peay, also praised Jackson, but didn’t go overboard. “Good player,” Neal said. “Just a solid good player, point blank, that’s all.”
Does Jackson look like an SEC linebacker? “Oh, yeah,” Neal said. “He’s definitely got the skill set to be an SEC linebacker, and I can definitely see what the hype is about.” - Mike Stanger, The Leaf Chronicle
09/04/13 - QUOTE TO NOTE: "All you have to do is watch a couple clips and they have your attention. They have SEC talent, and you know they've gone on the road and played Alabama when they were no. 1, they've gone on the road and played LSU when they were no. 1. They understand the different venues. They're extremely competitive, they're a competitive football team. You can see it in the way they play the game. They have a great competitive spirit, great competitive character so it's going to be a great challenge." -- Vols coach Butch Jones on Western Kentucky. - The Sports Xchange
