“He's way ahead of the game compared to any other high school defensive back I've coached in 35 years,” Jones said. “He always understands what the offense is trying to do. He played some quarterback for us and so he kind of understands the game from that perspective as well and I think it's really beneficial to him playing in the secondary.
“He studies the game, knows how to study the film, and that side of it isn't going to be a big adjustment for him in college.”
Despite Windham's size, his highlight film serves as evidence he's not afraid to come up and make a hit on an opposing ball carrier.
“He's a pretty good hitter. He's might not have great size, but he hits probably a lot like 225-pound linebacker,” Jones said. “He's just a football player. That's the best way to describe him.”
