Jones' Running Game Helped the Hornets Get their 1st Win

Jaashown Jones running game proved to be factor in the Hornets 31-26 victory over North Carolina A&T back on Saturday.

Jones made this Hornets's Homecoming a memorable one by carrying the ball 30 times for 144 yards and a touchdown that seal the Aggies fate.

Jones also made key runs on key drives that help the Hornets scored touchdowns especially in the red zone.

In the 1st quarter Jones ran for 35 yards for the 1st Hornets scored. Then in the 2nd quarter, he ran 19 hard earn yards to help Nick Elko throw a touchdown to cut the Aggie lead to 14-12 before halftime.

Late in the 3rd quarter Jones kept the adrenaline going, Jones ran 20 yards to help Anthony Glaud throw a touchdown pass to Justin Wilson to give the Hornets a 18-14 lead.

Finally in the 4th quarter, Jones ran another 30 yards to help Glaud throw another touchdown this time to Lerrone Moore to increase the Hornets lead to double digits 25-14.

Let's face it, Jones and the entire Hornets football team are tired of losing ever since very 1st game against Southern University in the MEAC/SWAC Challenge back last month on Labor Day Weekend.

Back on October 9th in the Hornets 47-24 lost to Bethune-Cookman Jones really wanted to get back on the field because he had over 90 yards rushing in the 1st half and didn't return for the rest of the 2nd half.

Jones said it best in the October 14 article of The News Journal that if you don't win at practice then you will lose the game.

If DSU can stick to the running game with Jaashown Jones against Morgan State, South Carolina State, North Carolina Central, Norfolk State, and Howard then the Hornets offense can provide a well place touchdown drives to at least win three more ball games.
