Nice Story on 2009 Defensive Tackle Recruit Abry Jones

The Macon Telegraph does have a nice story on its sports page spotlighting 2009 DT recruit Abry Jones. Jones plays defensive end at two time defending AAAA state champion Northside High School in Warner Robins, which will travel to face perennial south Georgia power Camden County tonight in the state playoffs. If you're in the neighborhood, you have no excuse not to be at this game. It will undoubtedly be one of the best high school matchups of the season. Sidenote: Northside is coached by Conrad Nix, father of current Miami offensive coordinator Patrick Nix, who rocks a faux-rattlesnake skin tie like no one else.

I've had the chance to watch Jones play for the past couple of years, including his performance in the Georgia Dome last year against the loaded Tucker Tigers team that included LSU commit Drayton Calhoun and sought after linebacker Jonathan Davis. The guy is the real deal. He has incredible mobility for a 275 pounder, plays with exceptional leverage, and uses his hands to shed blockers about as well as any high school defensive lineman I've seen. The folks at Northside also indicate that he's a great kid who'll qualify with no trouble. Oh, and he's an Isley Brothers fan. How could that possibly be a bad thing?

Of course the hook of the story is that PA Announcers regularly refer to him as "Arby" Jones, which only makes the guy mad. Note: making 275 pound All-State defensive tackles mad is poor strategy. You should avoid that. Warner Robins Demons fans will tell you: you wouldn't like Abry when he's angry.

However I think it will also make for great gameday sign material. I can only imagine that in 2011 after a big Abry Jones sack against Mike Leach's Auburn Tigers that the ESPN camera crews will flash to the coed holding the "I'M THINKING ABRY!!!" sign. Just remember, you heard it here first.
