JACKSON POLAR BEAR FOOTBALL HIGHLIGHTS
Jackson first fielded a varsity football team in 1930 when Jackson High School is formed through a consolidation of numerous one-room school houses. They competed in numerous leagues with other Stark County schools, until 1964 when they became a charter member of the Federal League, along with Glenwood, Fairless, Marlington, Perry, South and Sandy Valley. They have been a member of the Federal League ever since.
