Gary Jones named All-American

Recommended Posts

Considering the year he's had this should come as no surprise. Look down below the story at the school records Jones set this year.




Albany, N.Y. – University at Albany’s Gary Jones has been named to the 2003 Associated Press I-AA All-America Football Team, as announced on Wednesday, Dec. 17 by the national wire service. Colgate and Delaware, who will meet for the national title on Dec. 19 in Chattanooga, Tenn, combined to place seven players on the AP All-America team.


Jones, a third-team running back, makes his second consecutive appearance on the Division I-AA All-America squad. He earned second-team recognition as a junior.


Jones, the Northeast Conference’s Offensive Player of the Year for the second straight year, broke his own conference single-season rushing record with 1,524 yards, and scored a league-leading 19 touchdowns. He ran for 100 or more yards against eight opponents, including a career-high 242 yards against Stony Brook on Oct. 25. Jones broke or tied 12 school records this season, including career rushing yards (3,033), touchdowns scored (42) and all-purpose yards (3,639).


The UAlbany tailback is sixth among the nation’s rushing leaders at 138.6 yards per game. He is fifth in Division I-AA in scoring (10.4 points per game) and 16th in all-purpose yards (153.6 ypg). Jones, a senior from Ravena, N.Y., was chosen to The Sports Network I-AA Mid-Major All-America Team earlier this month. He led the Great Danes to a 7-4 record and a share of the program’s second consecutive NEC championship.
