In 2014, Adoree’ Jackson had two kickoff-return touchdowns and averaged 29.74 yards per attempt. 

This season, Jackson hasn’t recorded a special-teams touchdown — he averages 22.58 yards per kickoff return. He has received more punt returns, however. Last year, he had just two punt returns but this season he’s recorded 18 returns for 148 yards. 

According to USC Rivals, Adoree’ says he hasn’t called for a fair catch since his junior year of high school. He adds, "That’s not for me," and doubts he’d call one during a game.

"Trust me," said Johnny Nansen, USC’s special teams coach, via LA Daily News. "It drives me crazy."
