Rebel On Presidential Campaign Trail

bilde.jpgLike every college football program, we have what seems like more than 100 team managers, most of which I never get the chance to know. But I remember Garrett Jackson. The Brookhaven native was doing grunt work for Equipment Manager Ken Crain from 2005-08. I'm not going to claim I could always recall his name back then, but I have awesome memories of him cracking me up on some bus trips. Garrett would wear a coaches' headset during games, and his recount of staff dialogue from the Coach O years are to this day some of the most hilarious Ole Miss football stories I've ever heard.

Garrett has probably picked up a few more good tales since his days with the Rebels. Since 2010, he has been the personal assistant or "body man" for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Since serving as the designated chair holder at an Iowa speaking event last fall, Garrett has been the subject of features by the New York Times, Associated Press, Clarion Ledger and even NBC's Rock Center (see below). Despite the chaos of the campaign trail, Garrett has continued to cheer hard for the Rebels with constant #hottytoddy and #flagshipfriday tweets from @dgjackson, including an occasional Ole Miss pic from the road.

We'll know tonight whether Garrett's next trip will take him to the White House, but regardless of the destination, you can guarantee the path will have plenty of laughs ... and a few hotty toddies.

    I am not and never have been an Ole Miss fan. I am however a Coach Freeze fan. I like what he represents in today's world of big time sports and what he stands for in leading young men of today into a more responsible role. He is everything that Ole Miss has never had. I am on his band wagon winning or losing.

    Gray pants with red and blue stripes on the legs have served Ole Miss football my entire life time. The blue on blue, red on red and white on white are hideous and UGLY! Leave the pants alone.
