James Jackson’s trip across the pond is coming up soon and Warren County Youth Soccer is doing everything it can to support the local soccer phenom.On Tuesday, WCYS president John Upchurch presented Jackson with a check for $500, along with a goodie bag of items for the 14-year-old to take with him when he travels to England in late July. The presentation was made at Pistole Park, where Upchurch and the local youth soccer league held a 3-on-3 soccer tournament to raise money for Jackson’s upcoming trip. Jackson earned the opportunity to travel to England when he was one of 18 players to be selected to the Tennessee Olympic developmental team in April.
