Rockwall student athlete, Matt Jones, took the field as this year’s varsity starting QB this past Friday night at Highlander stadium. This year, his senior season, he is one of captains of the team. Although he considers himself to be “quiet,” he hopes to lead his teammates by example. We sat down with Matt after last week’s game to hear his thoughts on this season.

 

Do you have any pre-game rituals? I always eat Chick-fil-a before my games.

 

How long have you been playing football?I’ve played since I was in 3rd grade. I started out as an OL in peewee league, believe it or not.

 

What personal and team goals do you have this season? My personal goal is to be the best I can be, and as a team goal we want to win state.

 

What has the team been working on this week to improve for the next game?
Fewer turnovers and better execution of the plays

 

Do you plan on playing football in college? Maybe, it really depends on where or if I can get a scholarship.

 

Who’s your favorite NFL or college football team? The Dallas Cowboys and either Texas or Baylor

 

Who is the athlete that inspires you the most? Drew Brees, because he’s a good guy on and off the field. He’s an overall good athlete.

 

This Saturday, at 1:30 p.m., Matt will lead the team onto the field at the Cotton Bowl as they take on the Rowlett Eagles with the home team advantage. We hope everyone can come out and show their Rockwall pride and cheer on Matt and the rest of the Rockwall Yellowjackets!
