"As long as they got my back, I just put it in the end zone and try to help my team out."
Because of his confidence in the line's execution, Jones said he's altered his running style
"I used to look for the edge, but now that my line has gotten better with the blocking schemes, I love to go in between the tackles and the guards and just follow my crease to the outside," he said. "Once I get out to the outside or one-on-one, I usually take advantage of it."
At approximately 5-foot-10, 185 pounds, Jones combines speed and strength to his advantage, Souk said.
"He runs hard inside," said Souk, who took over the Oak Hill program after the school absorbed Mount Hope, where he previously coached.
"He likes to take the ball inside if we can run an iso or something with him inside. He's got speed on the outside. On second step, he's going full speed."
In addition to physical ability, Jones demonstrates the more cerebral characteristics of a successful running back, too, Souk said.
"We'll go in the film room and he'll look at the defense and he'll see what he can do that's going to be the best move for him to make," Souk said of Jones' study. "He'll tell us in the film room when you cut back inside he's ready to come back across the middle or he'll say 'I can break outside on this.'
"When game time comes, he'll come to the sideline and he'll say 'Coach, if we can get a chip on this linebacker, I believe I can take this thing right up inside on them.' He's got good vision, a good understanding of the game."
With a solid line before him and one last season to cap his high school career, Jones said he envisions a great year ahead.
"Senior year, I think we have a lot of talent and I'm just ready to work with the guys and try to lead my team to some victories, especially into the playoffs," Jones said, "and just go out with a good year in my senior year to show the colleges what I got."
