JONES LONGHORNS

Coach: DAVE MARTIN

10-2

OFFENSE

The Jones Longhorns are hungry. They want to get on the field and get the 2019 season underway. Head coach Dave Martin said his team is experienced and they are eager to take the field.

“Our offense matured in 2018,” he said. “We will pick up that progression with several returning starts back this season.”

Korbin Cox (5-10, 190, Jr.) is the starting running back in the spread offense. Cox rushed for 1,182 yards and scored 20 touchdowns last season. Daniel Jackson (5-11, 190, Sr.) passed for 1,985 yards and 25 TDs as a junior. He also added six rushing touchdowns and is looking forward to a great senior season. Ty Tucker (6-2, 175, Jr.) may be the benefactor of Jackson’s arm. Last season Tucker caught 49 passes for 704 yards and seven touchdowns. Inside receiver Elijah Reed (5-9, 155, Jr.) will play a role in the success of the Longhorns this season. As a sophomore, Reed caught 33 balls for 407 yards and seven touchdowns. The offensive line features notable players like Ethan Stewart (6-0, 280, Sr.) and Christian Fergoso (5-11, 275, Sr.).

DEFENSE

The Jones defense only returns four starters to the lineup this season.

Rhaden Dunham (5-11, 160, Sr.) plays his defensive back position with an edge. Last season Dunham recorded 45 tackles and picked off three passes. He also added 10 pass breakups. Trey Dorrell (5-10, 170, Jr.) accompanies Dunham in the secondary where his 30 tackles and four interceptions are a big part of the success the defense experienced last season. Dorrell is a heady player who scored a 33 on the ACT as a sophomore.

Noseguard Austin Conover (6-1, 290, Jr.) captured 30 ball carriers last year and accounted for three QB sacks. Hyram Kasskasskee (5-11, 220, Sr.) starts at defensive end where his ability to get upfield and pressure the offense will cause problems for opposing teams. Last season Kasskasskee bagged 47 tackles and two sacks.

“Defense will lack experience but will have speed and playmaking potential to keep up with the standard of Jones defense,” Martin said.
