High School AD: DeSean Jackson Wasn’t In Gang

DeSean Jackson’s high school athletic director and counselor are the latest to come forward and say the NFL wide receiver doesn’t have any gang affiliations, which was originally alleged in a NJ.com story last week.

“DeSean is a great guy — he was a sweet kid when he was in high school, always very polite and respectful with me,” said Debbie Hughes, Jackson’s counselor at Long Beach Poly, according to the PressTelegram.com. “There was no gang activity with him. He wasn’t in a gang. That’s not to say other students weren’t, but DeSean definitely wasn’t one of them.”
