All-conference, all-America and Walter Payton Award candidate returns for his third and final season as Appalachian State’s starting quarterback … is coming off one of the best seasons by a passer in Appalachian history … set school records for single-season completions (268) and pass attempts (406) while falling just 13 yards short of the program record with 3,278 passing yards … with a similar campaign as a senior, could finish his career ranked as high as second in Appalachian’s all-time annals for career passing yards, completions, attempts, touchdowns and total offense, behind only four-time all-American and two-time Payton Award winner Armanti Edwards … already owns six school records (most passing yards by a sophomore, most passing yards by a junior and most consecutive games with 200 passing yards and 250 yards of total offense, both overall and to begin a career as a starter) … brings a string of 19-straight starts into the season … sustained a severe knee injury during a Week 9 win at Western Carolina on Oct. 27 of last season that limited his mobility down the stretch and required offseason surgery … sat out the majority of spring drills following the January procedure but participated fully in the Mountaineers’ offseason strength and conditioning program and is expected to be at 100 percent when fall camp opens … is a true dual-threat quarterback that can confound opposing defenses with his passing and running ability … draws many comparisons to Appalachian State Hall-of-Fame signal-caller Richie Williams due to his 6-3 frame, strong and accurate arm and ability to make plays with his feet either through called runs or improvisation … a respected team leader who is one of the few players in Appalachian history to have been voted a team captain by his teammates as a junior … is a fan favorite due to the way that he carries himself on and off the field, his regular interaction with fans of all ages and his willingness to give back to the community in a variety of ways … after going by the name of Jamal Jackson during the first four years of his collegiate career, has decided to use his full legal name, Jamal Londry-Jackson, to honor his mother, Kathy Londry.
