High School Football Player Delivers Jaw-Dropping National Anthem Performance

Meet Jackson Dean Nicholson.

Jackson is a high school senior in Maryland and a member of the football team, but his most impressive performance of their 49-21 victory Friday night, had nothing to do with a football.

“Last night was Senior Night. Played Chesapeake and we won 49-21! Last year playing on Carrol Field. Got the chance to sing our National Anthem,” he shared on Instagram.

And, he absolutely CRUSHED it. In full pads, just minutes before kick off, Jackson delivered his stunning take on the “Star Spangled Banner,” unlike anything I’ve ever heard before.

I don’t know if he has a future in football, but it sounds like he definitely has one in music. Check out the stunning performance below, and make sure you watch it all the way to the end.
