Alvin Jackson claimed that motivation was more important than physical prowess.

He was chosen by Governor Gary Herbert to fill the position left open by John Valentine’s departure in order to take the helm of the Utah Tax Commission.
He left in July 2016 to accept a position outside the state, and Daniel Hemmert, another appointee, took his place.
Father as a Coach
Alvin, a former baseball and basketball player for Embry-Riddle University, coached Frank for the most of his youth and recalls the several hours spent in the church gym and backyard, beginning at 6 a.m.
Al Jackson, Jackson’s father, saw his son’s extraordinary talents at a young age, but he, like Frank, had no idea how important those talents would turn out to be.
Alvin recalls observing Frank’s development as a young man and his quick rise to sporting prominence.
Frank openly and frequently references Frank’s mother in press interviews as having laid the spiritual foundation that both he and Alvin attribute to her.
Up until his ninth-grade year at Lehi High School, Jackson was enthralled by baseball, basketball, football, and golf.
Frank saw that basketball was more entertaining than the slower-paced game of baseball, therefore he made the decision to concentrate on one sport.

Career in College
At the 2016 Hall of Fame Tip-Off, Jackson made his Duke debut on November 11 against Marist, outscoring them 94-49 while dishing over four assists.
On January 4, he contributed 15 points and four assists to a 110-57 thumping of Georgia Tech.
On February 28, Jackson set a season-high by scoring 22 points and going 3-4 from beyond the arc in a 75-70 victory over Florida State.
On March 8, Jackson outscored Clemson 79-72 while shooting 7-10 from the field for 20 points.

Jackson averaged 10.9 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 1.7 assists while starting 16 of Duke’s 36 games. He also shot 40 percent from behind the arc and 54 percent from the 2-point range.
He announced on May 12, 2017, that he would forgo his last three collegiate seasons and sign with an agent.
On June 22, 2017, Jackson was drafted by the Charlotte Hornets as the 31st overall pick; however, for financial reasons, he was quickly traded to the NBA’s New Orleans Pelicans.
On July 11, 2017, Jackson became a part of the Pelicans.
He underwent foot surgery following the draft and was sidelined until January; however, he underwent foot surgery again in January and was sidelined for the remainder of the season.
On July 6, 2018, Frank played in his first summer league game, finishing with 13 points, six rebounds, one assist, and one steal.
However, Jackson sprained his left ankle early in the second half and was forced to withdraw from the competition.
Jackson scored a career-high with 17 points and three three-pointers in just 19 minutes off the bench against the Memphis Grizzlies on January 7, 2019. The Pelicans won that game 114-95 in the end.
On February 2, 2019, Jackson topped his previous career-high with 25 points on 10-20 shooting in a 113-108 loss to the San Antonio Spurs.
On December 4, 2020, Frank struck a deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder. On December 21, Jackson was let go by the Thunder.
On December 27, Jackson and the Detroit Pistons agreed to a two-way contract. Jackson and the Pistons reached a two-year contract extension in August 2021.
At the 2017 NBA draft combine, Frank’s athletic testing results were startling, with his top marks coming in the vertical leap (42 inches) and shuttle sprint.
Jackson has been able to use his agility effectively as a rim penetrator and scorer because of his 3-point shooting, which has made everything come together.
Jackson, though, noticed J.J. Redick’s off-ball movement and how Jrue Holiday and he had such precise mechanics when in New Orleans.
He used Wayne Ellington’s 12 seasons in the NBA as a 3-point expert last season with the Pistons to hone his abilities.
Jackson has developed into a different player than many had anticipated, but it’s to his credit that he’s watched, picked up tips from more seasoned teammates, and worked out how to find his own niche.
Enhancement of Games
Jackson suddenly materialized after agreeing to a two-way deal and evolved into a dependable scoring threat for the Detroit Pistons.
He’s been compared to everyone from Vinnie Johnson to Jason Terry for his ability to come off the bench with “instant” offense.
As he matures into a more pure shooting guard, Jackson expects his 41 percent 3-point shooting from last season to rise.
He is a fantastic young man who was released, entered the team as a two-way player, and has earned every second of playing time.
Frank performs each task correctly on both ends of the floor. He performs both offensively and defensively admirably.
In addition to improving his three-point shooting, Jackson also worked on his defense and showed that he could cover a variety of positions on the perimeter.
Sense of Style
In a tough league, Jackson is among the best-dressed players.
He routinely makes confident entrances into the most prestigious sports organization in the world.
There is a small but passionate fanbase of Jackson’s handles and fashion sense.
The sportsman has been a certified Jawnz fan since he was a youngster.
He remembered binge-watching The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and spending hours alone in his room, putting together clothes inspired by the series.
He still finds it cathartic and, in fact, essential to his stylistic growth to put on garments to assess what fits and what doesn’t.
In a sea of skintight Amiri jeans and graphic-heavy sweaters, Frank stands out as an example of high-level restraint—the uncommon athlete whose look you should copy.
SSENSE, a Montreal-based fashion paradise with a distinctive merchandising mix that has earned it a perennial favorite of all of the world’s most elite dressers, including the staff of this magazine, is where he does the majority of his internet shopping.
He gives special praise to Fear of God designer Jerry Lorenzo, who was recently appointed to lead Adidas’ basketball division and for whom he previously modeled.
Frank Jackson is completely a mystery when it comes to his private life. In the realm of basketball, the Detroit Pistons point guard is still a hot issue, but little is known about his personal life.
Based on a few prom pictures from 2016, fans have assumed that Frank is dating Elly Pettro Brian, who was his prom date.
Although they never discussed a relationship, everything fell apart when Ellie got married on November 12, 2018.
There is no information about a potential relationship on his Instagram or other social media profiles.
He has only ever mentioned a girlfriend once, in a tweet about his “hotter than a hot girlfriend” in 2016.
It should come as no surprise that the athlete’s post was complete garbage.
