Frank Hardin Jackson (born April 14, 1939) is a former American football wide receiver. He played college football at Southern Methodist University (SMU) and professionally with the American Football League's Dallas Texans, the Kansas City Chiefs, and the Miami Dolphins. As a halfback, he scored four touchdowns (two rushing, two receiving) for the Texans in a 49–21 victory over the Denver Broncos in 1961. As a wide receiver, in 1964 he caught four touchdown passes from Len Dawson in a 49–6 Chiefs defeat of the San Diego Chargers. That tied the pro football record at the time. He was an American Football League All-Star in 1965. He played on the Texans' 1962 AFL Championship team, winning the longest pro football game ever played up to that time in the AFL Championship game against the two-time defending AFL Champion Houston Oilers.
