Jones to play in Raycom All-Star Game

BG football star Chris Jones will play in one more game as a college athelte.

Jones, who finished the year with the Falcons during the Military Bowl, accepted his appearance in the game for his first All-Star contest.

He will be representing the Stars portion of the roster and will be coached by former NFL head coach Jim Bates. Bates coached the Miami Dolphins in 2004.

As a defensive tackle, Jones turned many heads this past season as well as impressed NFL scouts that frequented the Doyt Perry press box to see him play. Jones finished the season with 12.5 sacks and earned the MAC defensive player of the year.

To add to his accolades, Jones was also named an All-American by the Football Writers Association of America.

The game will be telecasted live on CBS Sports Network at 3 p.m. Saturday. This is the first time this game has taken place.
