DeSean Jackson Pays Tribute to Father

DeSean Jackson reflects on the relationship he had with his late father, Bill, in a feature produced by UNINTERRUPTED.

The road to the NFL was not an easy one for DeSean Jackson. But he had one steady, reliable constant throughout his life: his father. Earlier this month, UNINTERRUPTED released a feature on Jackson and his relationship with his father, Bill, to whom Jackson credits much of his success.

Jackson discusses the values his father instilled in him growing up in an area where a father figure wasn't always present in their children's lives. He also reflects on how his relationship with his father has shaped the relationship DeSean has with his own son. The three-minute feature can be viewed by clicking the video above.
