There were a lot of people who helped and supported Jones from Brownsburg to Bowling Green and now Houston. He mentioned his family — Jeff (father), Beth (mother), Jenna (sister) and Jordan (brother) — as instrumental along the way. Jones was also thankful for his coaches at Brownsburg and mentioned especially Comer, Bryan Neese, Justin Pelley, Josh Yoder and Jason Wilburn.
“They did a lot for me when I was there and they were supporting me through all of this and they are a bunch of great guys,” Jones said.
Jones also gave credit to his faith for helping him along the way.
“I’ve got to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ just for having this opportunity,” Jones said. “Without him, honestly none of this that I’ve been able to do here at Bowling Green or at Brownsburg would have been possible.”
Comer said he plans on buying a Houston Texans T-shirt and hat to support Jones and looks forward to watching his first former player play on Sundays.
“He’ll be an inspiration to a lot of kids around here,” he said. “I’m sure Chris will come back and I’ve already told Chris when he comes back to make sure to see us. We’ll have him come in and speak and continue to inspire kids.”
