Chicago QB Named Army All-American
Demetrius Jones is a three star prospect and the #22 rated quarterback in the country. He is the #6 ranked prospect in the state of Illinois.
"Demetrius 'Double-D' Jones is one of the top prospects in the Land of Lincoln. Demetrius is a dual-threat quarterback and he has already been compared to former Chicago (Mt. Carmel) quarterback Donovan McNabb," said Chris Pool of Scout.com.
"Our slogan, 'An Army of One,' recognizes the strength of the individual in achieving team goals. Demetrius demonstrates how football, like the Army, makes you a stronger person not just for today, but into the future. A national audience will see this when he takes the field in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl," said Col. Nickerson.
Jones is a standout quarterback at Morgan Park High School and was one of 400 players nominated nationally and one of 78 selected to participate by the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Selection Committee.
