Decided to do player profiles of players who you might not know or you might know , but you should respect them for their roles on their respective teams. Every Football Player Has A Story To Tell
Jalen Jones South Elgin Class of 2022 Athlete 6'0 155
Jalen Jones how is you season going for you so far?
The season has been going great! The seniors on our team really came together and made a promise to each other that we will fight for each other game in and game out. For me personally my season has been great. I’ve been playing both sides of the ball and doing great on both sides! I’ve gotten a lot of touches this season and a lot of touchdowns to follow that!
What does football mean to you?
Football to me is everything. Football is going to help guide me into my future. This game alone has showed me many things about life than I will ever learn in a classroom. I’ve been playing since I was 5 years old and it has became my passion.
What should college coaches know about you?
That I am willing to play any position for them, I will be versatile to any defensive coverages and any offensive formation, along with special teams. I am a family oriented person and very humble. I will leave my best efforts and attitude on and off the field.
What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field?
My versatility, my effort, and my attitude.
What has been your favorite memory so far this season?
Beating Glenbard South early in the season. And having to guard one of the best wide receivers in the state Cam Williams
What does South Elgin need to do to get the win tomorrow?
We play to our brand of football and play to our standard. Also we need to play fast, physical, and tough.
Remember Deep Dish Football Is Just Not About Recruiting
