GERALD JONES Pawnee Running back 5-11, 170, 4.38 <BR><BR> With 2,040 yards rushing and 19 touchdowns last season, Jones will be a marked man as a senior. Then again, he was a marked man as a junior. The lightning-fast tailback charged through defenses as a sophomore two years ago from the fullback position. Back then, Jones' brother Grant (now a strong safety at Oklahoma State) was the star tailback.

And now that Gerald is in that role, his twin brother Gerard has taken over the fullback slot.

"He's a great all-around back," said Pawnee coach Scott Harmon of Gerald Jones. "He only played in nine total games but still ran for over 2,000 yards."

Jones rambled for 2040 to be precise and collected 19 touchdowns along the way. Averaging 7.56 yards per carry, Jones helped lead Pawnee to an 8-4 mark a year after losing to Millwood in the state final in 2002. Because of Grant, OSU has the early lead for Jones' services.

"I'm looking at other places, too," said Jones. "Colorado, Iowa State. But I'd like to play with my brother."

However, he doesn't want to switch positions like his brother did upon arrival in Stillwater.

"I hope to stay a running back," said Jones, who is a state champion in the 100 meters. "That's the position I think I'm best at. But, we'll see what happens."
