Texas commitment D’Shawn Jamison was presented with an Under Armour All-America jersey along with teammate Al’vonte Woodard on Friday at Lamar High (Houston, Texas).
“Receiving my Under Armour jersey was a great experience and blessing,” said Jamison. “It showed that all the hours of hard work and preparation matter. It means a lot because all of my friends were there for the ceremony. It was special when I got the award.”
The dynamic defensive back and return man, ranked No. 87 in the ESPN 300, didn’t begin his high school career with All-American aspirations, but quickly realized the opportunity in front of him.
“I probably realized this was possible when I first started on varsity. When I was on the field, I was just looking to cover the man in front of me and make plays,” said Jamison. “I didn’t know about offers, and rankings and things like that. I was playing for my love of football. When I started researching about guys in the NFL and their path, it showed me that I could some of the things they did.”
Four questions with D’Shawn Jamison:
What player are you looking forward to competing with or against in the Under Armour All-America Game?
There is not a single person. It’s more about the experience, the chance to train, and go against the best. I look forward to going against every receiver there.
If you could start a team with any player in your class, who would it be and why?
There isn’t one. I’m going with all of the guys from my 2018 class that we have committed to Texas.
What is your earliest football memory?
It was actually a not-so-good memory. I was 10 years old. I played tight end. I caught a hitch route and ran about 70 yards, but I got caught at the three-yard line. It was kind of embarrassing.
What number do your wear, and why?
I wear 5. I wear it because my dad wore 5 in high school in New Orleans.
