The NYPD Football team wants to open their 2017 season by honoring former Army cornerback Brandon Jackson who died Sept. 11 in a car accident.
The Finest will play the Philadelphia Blue Flame Saturday at 4:30 pm at Michie Stadium, West Point.
The game will honor Jackson who played for Holy Cross High School in Queens.
Army will play its Spring game before the law enforcement contest at 2pm.
Jackson's mother, Morna Davis, is a NYPD detective and some of her co-workers will be playing in the game.
"The game was over," said Finest general manager Pat Fitzsimmons.
