FARGO - Park River's Jackson Hankey made his debut on the Fargodome turf Saturday afternoon
For Hankey, this was the fulfillment of a lifelong dream.
Hankey, a Park River native, redshirted last fall as he adjusted to Division 1 football. He saw his first reps at linebacker during spring football and opened the eyes of the coaching staff.
Hankey was a multi-sport standout at Park River-Fordville-Lankin, winning state championships in football and baseball.
He walked on to the Bison football team and saw his first game action Saturday against Cal Poly, registering six tackles.
WDAY Sports Director Dom Izzo has the story on Hankey becoming joining a long line of Class B standouts playing football for NDSU.
