Coach Andrew Jackson gave sage advice to his players throughout his 21 years as a head high school football coach and led both LBJ and Reagan high schools to the playoffs during that time.

This was a tough one for everyone - as news spread that LBJ head football coach Andrew Jackson lost his battle with cancer.

Jackson passes away at the age of 50.

Jackson was head coach at LBJ High School between 2013-2017 and at Reagan from 1996 till 2001.

Doctors diagnosed Andrew Jackson with esophageal cancer back in march but Jackson was determined to beat it.

He fought through it and coached the jaguars this season even on the sideline as their playoff run ended against dripping springs.

When we profiled Jackson back in august before the season started he wanted his message spread as he continued his fight.
