Jones was a top return specialist for West Virginia. The 5-11 junior, who also earned All-Big East First Team honors at cornerback, led the league in punt returns with a 14.8 average that ranks him 13th nationally. Jones, who is from College Park, Ga., also averaged 22.8 yards on 22 kickoff returns, which places him fourth in the conference.
Joining Jones and Marshall on the first team were six other Mountaineers: wide receiver Chris Henry, offensive linemen Dan Mozes, Tim Brown and Jeff Berk, defensive lineman Ben Lynch and safety Jahmile Addae. WVU had eight first-team selections, more than any other team.
The Mountaineers also placed four players on the second team all-conference squad. Offensive lineman Mike Watson, running back Kay Jay Harris, linebacker Adam Lehnortt and safety Mike Lorello were the WVU rpresentatives on that team.
