Jackson ‘a good friend’

Seattle Seahawks - The News Tribune:
When Tarvaris Jackson arrives in Seattle and makes his way through the locker room today, he’ll see at least one familiar face from his childhood. Seattle Seahawks receiver Ben Obomanu grew up playing against the team’s newest quarterback in Alabama. The two attended rival schools and played each other in high school, with Obomanu attending Selma High in Selma, Ala., and Jackson attending Sidney Lanier High in Montgomery, about a 30-minute drive away. "We shared some of the same friends when he transferred to Alabama State," Obomanu said. "A lot of my good friends played on his team and were classmates of his. So he’s a good friend of mine, so I’m looking forward to him coming in and seeing what he can do in this offense."
