Jones wins NEC player of the week

Recommended Posts

I guess you can't give the award to the whole O-Line. I also see that the Danes moved up the poll this week but are still behind Duquense. How many ECAC bowls does the MAAC have to lose before the poll people realize the best MAAC team would be a middle of the pack NEC team?



     Somerset, N.J. – University at Albany’s Gary Jones has been chosen as the Northeast Conference Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in last Saturday’s 42-7 victory over Sacred Heart on Monday, Sept. 29.

     Jones, a senior tailback, keyed a record-breaking running attack by carrying 24 times for a season-high 162 yards and one touchdown. Albany’s 404 rushing yards established a new NEC single-game mark, as Jones cracked the 100-yard plateau for the ninth time in his last 11 games dating back to last season.

     Jones, the 2002 NEC Offensive Player of the Year, moved into fourth place on the school’s career rushing touchdowns chart (25) with a 21-yard scamper in the first quarter to give the Great Danes a 14-0 edge. He also climbed to eighth on the school list in career rushing yards (1,884), ninth in all-purpose yards (2,363) and into a tie for fourth in scoring with 156 points.
