Jason Wesley Phillips (born February 14, 1986) is an American football linebacker for the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League (NFL). He was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the fifth round of the 2009 NFL Draft. He played college football at Texas Christian University (TCU).

Phillips has also played for the Carolina Panthers.

Early years

Phillips played quarterback and linebacker at Waller High School in Waller, Texas, where he was coached by his father, Jim Phillips. He also served as the Bulldogs' long snapper. As a senior in 2003, he threw for 1,070 yards and rushed for 1,291 to earn District 18-4A MVP honors. He also ran track at Waller, and was a regional qualifier in the 110 meter hurdles.

College career

Once at TCU, Phillips redshirted in 2004 as a fullback. In 2005, he was moved to linebacker and immediately earned a starting job. His first collegiate game was a 17-10 win against Oklahoma in Norman. That year, Phillips led the Horned Frogs in tackles and helped them win their first-ever Mountain West Conference Championship. He became the first freshman in conference history to be named All-MWC, as a Second Team selection. He was also named MWC Freshman of the Year by College Football News and Second Team Freshman All-America by The Sporting News. As a sophomore in 2006, Phillips was named First Team All-MWC and was second on the team in tackles.[1]

Heading into his junior season, he started all 25 games of his college career. Recently Dave Campbell's Texas Football selected Phillips to their 2007 Preseason All-Texas College Team.
