D'Qwell Jackson has played a decade in the NFL, but gets his first shot at his hometown team Sunday as the Bucs travel to play his Colts.

Jackson, 32, was born in Largo and starred at Seminole High, and he continues to play at a high level, leading the NFL with 100 total tackles entering this week's games.

Jackson, a linebacker, has had at least 100 tackles in five consecutive seasons, and hasn't missed a game since he missed 26 in a row after tearing both pectoral muscles in 2009-10. He has brought the same leadership to the Colts he had in his first eight seasons with the Cleveland Browns, who let him go after the 2013 season.
