Steven Rashad Jackson (born July 22, 1983) is an American football running back for the St. Louis Rams of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Rams 24th overall in the 2004 NFL Draft. He played college football at Oregon State.
Jackson was born in Las Vegas, Nevada and was a running back for Eldorado High School. He was named the Sunrise Regional MVP and rushed for 6,396 yards and 81 touchdowns for the Sundevils. Jackson's Eldorado squad lost in the state final his senior year to Chris Carr (currently of the Baltimore Ravens) and his perennial powerhouse McQueen High School (Reno, Nevada).
Jackson's subsequent success has been credited with prompting college football programs to take more interest in players in the Las Vegas area.
