Jackson said all the flip-flopping of positions doesn't bother him a bit.
"It's not a problem at all for me,'' Jackson said. "I'm just willing to do whatever the team needs for me to do to win. And if that's me just going from running back to receiver, that's fine with me.''
GW coach Steve Edwards Jr. said after Friday's game that he think Riffe will be "all right'' for this week's showdown at No. 1 Huntington.
"I think Draven will be ready again,'' Edwards said. "I think we'll be at full strength. We might even get [lineman Jack] Skidmore back to help us out, and that will be good.''
Edwards realizes what a special tandem he has at the tailback spot, as Riffe and Jackson now have about 2,950 combined yards rushing on the season with 36 TDs. Along with one very important TD pass.
"Jackson comes in and does a great job,'' Edwards said. "He came in and lived by the [motto] of bail a man out. He had a job to do, and I think he did it.
"We're a pound-it team, but we can hit you with a little bit of deception now and then.''
