Demetrius Jones, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound, quarterback, from Chicago (Morgan Park), opened his season this past weekend in Soldier Field against perennial Catholic League power Mt. Carmel. Jones and his Morgan Park teammates came up short on the scoreboard but “Double D” showed why so many schools offered him a scholarship.

Several Domers made the trek to Soldier Field to get a glimpse of Jones, a Notre Dame verbal commitment. By most accounts, Demetrius struggled. However, it was the first game of the year and he was up against a defense that was tough and keying on him.

Jones did throw some very nice passes, his numbers could have been better but there were a few drops by his receivers. Demetrius showed very good quickness, wiggle and athleticism as well.

Morgan Park opened up the game with a long touchdown drive. Here are the highlights from that drive.
