Hinesville's Hokey Jackson, who lived in Athens and who Georgia Trend magazine dubbed one of the states sports legends in 2011, has apparently died.

Numerous friends of the former Bradwell Institute football coach, say he died overnight. During Jackson's 13 years with the then BI Lions, the team never had a losing season, won four region championships, two south Georgia championships and one Class B state championship. That was in 1965.

The Courier will have more on the story as it is developed.
