Nate Jackson ‘02

The most prolific wide receiver to ever play for Menlo College, Jackson shattered every career receiving record in school history including: touchdowns (43), receiving yards (3,976) and total receptions (261). An impressive three-year career with the Oaks spanning 1999-2001 caught the eye of Bay Area football legend Bill Walsh and the rest was history. His highly-regarded NFL-memoir “Slow Getting Up: A Story of NFL Survival from the Bottom of the Pile,” Jackson’s first published book, provides an insightful look into his six-year career in the NFL and has received rave reviews from multiple national publications including: the New York Times, Rolling Stone Magazine and NPR.
