The Jackson Touchdown Club recently named its statewide honorees for its Most Valuable Senior Awards, and defensive end/linebacker Javancy Jones received the award for Jackson State University.
During its annual gala, the club presented awards to seniors on each football team in Mississippi. They are honored for displaying outstanding leadership on and off the field.
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 activities, 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.
