JACKSON – Javancy Jones, Jackson State’s freshman standout, has been named to The Sports Network Jerry Rice Award Watch List. The award is presented to the FCS Freshman of the Year. Through six games Jones, a Macon, Miss. native has recorded 29 tackles (14 solo), 10.5 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks, two pass breakups and a forced fumble. He also returned a blocked punt for a touchdown.

The award will go to the top first-year player in the FCS, whether a true freshman or a redshirt freshman. The Rice Award Watch List can undergo revision during the season. The winner will be announced at the Sports Network FCS Awards Presentation on Dec. 16 in Philadelphia.

Jackson State returns to action Saturday, Oct. 12 when the Tigers travel to Itta Bena, Miss. to take on the Mississippi Valley State Delta Devils. Kick-off is set for 2 p.m.
