D.I.T.R.: Jackson Hildebrand

Jackson Hildebrand is a 6’4” 275 lbs. offensive lineman who plays for Alamo Heights High School in San Antonio, Texas. An offensive tackle and center, he is a physical tackle who loves to stay with his block the entire play. One of the key pieces of an talented Alamo Heights squad, he is a key fixture on a line, getting to the second and third levels to open up a lane in the run game. Pancaking people is something he does well, as well as protecting his quarterback. I was able to sit down with him and do a Q&A!
