Jones ready for next step
Nobody was on the Jones bandwagon more than yours truly last year. And I heard it from Millwood fans and Davis fans for picking the Longhorns so much.
Still early in the game but get ready for the same thing. Jones is losing some quality players like Micah Thompson, Jeremy Barnhill and Tyler Bayless, among others, but a strong group returning has coach Dave Martin rightfully excited about the fall.
And why not? Jones beat state champion Hennessey 21-0 in Week 2 and lost 26-20 in overtime at Davis in the second round of the playoffs. Martin said watching the Eagles and Wolves battle for the gold ball is all the motivation his team has needed.
“We felt we were right there in that company,” Martin said. “Winning a championship is no longer something to hope for. It has become a reality to these kids.”
When looking at Jones, it starts with star wide receiver Tylor Seabolt. For the last two years feel he’s been a little underrated and perhaps overshadowed by kids like Bridge Creek’s Caden Locke and Millwood’s Brandon Swindall. Those studs are gone. Gotta believe it’s Seabolt’s turn to take the spotlight.
