Boise Ross changing number to 41 to honor Solomon Jackson

The only surprise to me in this news was that it didn’t happen before the beginning of the season.

Ross, a senior defensive back fully capable of playing his way onto an All-MAC and NFL team, is the no-brainer choice to claim 41 this season in honor of Jackson after the sophomore defensive end passed away February 28th.

For different reasons, other teams here and there across college sports have memorial numbers that change hands to one senior a year. I would like to see something similar develop with UB Football and Jackson’s 41.
