Washington Post Does Piece on Barrett Jones

By


As I go through my daily news searches, I found a very interesting and good article in the Washington Post about Tide offensive lineman Barrett Jones.

The article talks about how Jones manages football, academics, and his faith.

“I don’t think there’s enough good things that you can say about Barrett Jones,” said Nick Saban. “He’s, I think, as fine a person as you’re ever going to be around — me or you or anyone else — in terms of his willingness to serve other people.”

We all know Barrett’s commitments on the field, but did you know that he has been playing violin since the age of three, he is a three- time Academic All-American, and his taken mission trips to Haiti recently.

In world where we have so much negative news about athletes, it’s nice to hear a positive story about a student-athlete who is a role model on and off the field.

Check out the Post’s story on Barrett Jones.
