Jackson Touchdown Club gives Jones Most Valuable Senior Award

javancy-jones-150x150When the Jackson Touchdown Club named its statewide honorees for its Most Valuable Senior Awards defensive end/linebacker Javancy Jones received the award for Jackson State University.

Jones is a three-time All-SWAC (Southwestern Athletic Conference) performer, a four time All-American and was a finalist for the 2015 C Spire Conerly Award.

At the end of his senior season, Jones finished just four tackles shy of smashing the FCS career record of 80 in the category of “tackles for loss.”

As one of the top defensive players in the SWAC, he posted 82 tackles (third in the SWAC), 19.5 tackles for loss (second in the SWAC), and four sacks (11th in the SWAC).

On top of his on-field accomplishments, Jones displayed his leadership abilities by being an active participant in community service projects, while also maintaining a 3.5 grade-point average.

Finishing his career as one of JSU’s most decorated defensive players, Jones is on track to graduate this spring.
