About Steven Jackson

Steven Rashad Jackson (born July 22, 1983) is an American football running back for the St. Louis Rams of the National Football League (NFL). He was drafted by the Rams 24th overall in the 2004 NFL Draft. He played college football at Oregon State University. Jackson was born in Las Vegas, Nevada and was a running back for Eldorado High School. He was named the Sunrise Regional MVP and rushed for 6,396 yards and 81 touchdowns for the Sundevils. Jackson's Eldorado squad lost in the state final his senior year to McQueen High School (Reno, Nevada). Jackson's subsequent success has been credited with prompting college football programs to take more interest in players in the Las Vegas area. This success also led to Jackson's induction into the Southern Nevada Sports Hall of Fame in 2011. Jackson ended his Oregon State career after three seasons. In 36 games, he carried 743 times for 3,625 yards for a 4.
