Linebacker Javicz Jones

Welcome back to SPEED DATING, where we give you a crash course introduction to each member of the 2017 Iowa Barnstormers roster!

Today we’re going to introduce you to defensive lineman Javicz Jones.

Jones (6-1, 230, Mary Hardin Baylor) returns to the Iowa Barnstormers for his third season with the team. Jones first joined the Barnstormers roster in 2015 where he saw action in all 14 games finishing the season with 97.5 total tackles. Jones’ efforts earned him league honors naming him to the 2015 First Team All-IFL. In 2016, Jones closed out the Barnstormers season having appeared in 7 games and collected 62.5 total tackles after a brief stint with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League (CFL).

What does Coach Wooten see in Jones? “From the second I took the job, Javicz was the guy I wanted. He is a playmaker. He is strong in the run game, pass game, and a huge asset to special teams. I’m excited to be able to coach a player like Javicz.”
