Malachi Jones: Setting a New Pace
Malachi Jones Ht: 6-1 Wt: 182 Position: WR Year: Class of 2012 High School: Central Gwinnett HS (Lawrenceville, GA "It feels really great to be a threat; at my previous school we had one of the top rushers in school history, so they fed him the ball a lot. It feels good to know that all my talents are being utilized." Coming from a predominately running school, Jones has made the most of his opportunities with his new team. "I surpassed my stats for last season three weeks ago, so that is really good. I think I have grown as a person and an athlete. I am really happy with my production this year." "As of right now, my stats stand at 70 receptions, 923 yards and 12 touchdowns." Ever the competitor, Jones is working to help his team in any way possible. "Everyone has something to work on; I want to be more explosive and really help out my team. People look at stats and say wow, but if we don't win, it's a bittersweet moment. I just want to encourage my teammates and push on to finish strong, because unfortunately the playoffs are out of the picture." "I tell my running back and players that if the ball is thrown to my side, I will block for them, I will do everything I can to help them go for 60 and a touchdown." Jones is hoping his numbers will help him in the recruiting process. "Basically right now I am playing the waiting game. Schools are starting to close in, schools like UCLA, Louisiana Monroe, UT-Chattanooga and North Carolina State University." Jones has quietly battled through his loss, but can feel his dad in everything he does. "I hear my father and feel him in everything I do. I miss him, and I appreciate everything he did in his 42 years of life."
