“I feel like I could have played more plays for my team,” Jones said. “Spanish Fort is just a great team. My boys, we fought well. They were the better team at the end of the fourth quarter.”
The son of a former Miami player, Jones had a big season in first year year as the starting quarterback for the Yellow Jackets. Throwing for 1,595 yards and 13 touchdowns and adding 824 yards and 12 touchdowns on the ground,“From the spring game to now I have improved a lot,” Jones said. “I have gotten better with my running, with my passing and with my game management. I’m trying to become a field general. I just want to be a better quarterback.”
Already with an offer from Jacksonville State early in the process and hearing from Auburn, Georgia, Mississippi State, Ole Miss and others, Jones said he’s just taking his time with the process at the moment, but already has a lot of interest in the Tigers and Coach Gus Malzahn’s program after camping on the Plains over the summer and making a visit for the Samford game on Saturday.
“I love Auburn,” Jones said. “I feel like I can fit in well there.”
