I’ve had to keep this under wraps for a couple days, but Oaks Christian running back Malcolm Jones was named Gatorade National Football Player of the Year today.
Jones is currently sitting in his fourth-period Bible class at Oaks Christian as Minnesota Twins superstar catcher Joe Mauer surprises him with the news. There will be a press conference at 12:15.
Jones has rushed for 2,156 yards and 36 touchdowns on 198 carries and has tallied 136 tackles, three interceptions, two sacks and two fumble recoveries. The U.S. Army All-American also has two receiving scores and three defensive touchdowns.
