Randall Belford Jackson (born March 6, 1944) is an American former college and professional football player who was an offensive lineman in the National Football League (NFL) for eight years during the 1960s and 1970s. Jackson played college football for the University of Florida, and thereafter, he played professionally for the Chicago Bears of the NFL.
Jackson received an athletic scholarship to attend the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida, where he was a tackle for coach Ray Graves' Florida Gators football team from 1963 to 1965. As a senior in 1965, he was a member of the first Gators squad to ever receive an invitation from a "major" bowl, the 1966 Sugar Bowl. Jackson graduated from Florida with a bachelor's degree in business administration in 1968, and was later inducted into the University of Florida Athletic Hall of Fame as a "Gator Great."
