1977 Profile: Ken Jones

Defensive End
No. 69
Arkansas State
"Jones started seven games at defensive end last year and played in 12 outings. He was credited with 29 tackles, half a sack and two fumble recoveries.
In 1977 he will be switched back to the offensive line, where he excelled in college. Jones is very quick, agile and aggressive with all the tools to be a top offensive lineman.
Jones was a first team All-America selection of the Football Writers and the Sporting News, and also a third team AP pick. He was a two-year starter at guard where he led the top rushing offense in college football in 1975. Ken played nose guard as a freshman and earned All-Conference honors. He missed most of his sophomore year with an appendectomy but played three games as a fullback and a tight end. Ken played in the East-West Shrine game and the Senior Bowl.
He is a physical education major. His brother Rodney plays football for Arkansas State."
