He's only a sophomore, but running back Jave Jones of A.C. Reynolds High has received a scholarship offer from the University of North Carolina. Jones put

together a stellar campaign in 2012. He made his debut against Watauga on August 17 in a 51-20 blowout win. Jones ran for 84 yards and two touchdowns in that game.
He finished the season with 1,541 rushing yards and 25 touchdowns last fall for a Rockets team that was 9-3. The Rockets lost to Indian Trail-Porter Ridge in the second round of the Class 4A state playoffs.
Jones, who stands 5-foot-eight and weighs 180 pounds, averaged six yards a carry and 128 yards a game. He also caught 23 passes for 251 yards and two TD.
