LIBERTY – At this time last year, the NFL Draft would have been in the books, but a date change to May has added a couple of weeks to the wait. But that wait is a good thing for former Mississippi State offensive lineman Gabe Jackson, who was honored in a special way Saturday in his hometown of Liberty.
Saturday was Gabe Jackson Day. The Amite County High School collected several awards from local leaders and his autograph was a hot commodity with his fellow residents.
