Greetings Jones High School Family and Friends,
Welcome to another exciting year of Tiger Athletics!
As we embark on another quest for bragging rights in the state of Florida, the Athletics Program and The Booster’s of Jones High School would like to personally recognize the efforts of so many members of the community who continue to show up and show out for the Jones High School Tigers. We couldn’t possibly name them all, so we won’t try. Undoubtedly, we would leave someone out. You know who you are, and so do we. Thank you for all you do.
My name is James Brown III, the newly appointed Athletics Director for Jones High School. As a 1987 graduate of JHS, I respect the Pride, Traditions, and Historical Spirit that surrounds this great institution. I am also a graduate of Florida A&M University to which Jones High School continues to be a prominent feeder institution.
Our Principal, Administrators, Faculty and Staff are committed to the success of all Tigers. STUDENT-athletes, in particular, have been assigned mandatorytutoring/study hall before practice three days a week. (All sports, all year) It is designed to allow students to complete homework, study, or get help, before they get home--tired. Grades will rise and our athletes will meet the requirements for the NCAA Clearinghouse. More importantly, it will prepare our athletes to succeed in the classroom today and remain eligible to compete. Our athletes must be positive contributors to the educational goals set for our school, on their way to playing at the next level.
I work with a winning team in the athletics department, from the office to the field. We have coaches who care and have the expertise to coach anywhere in the country. We rely on their ability to get the most out of our athletes. Now we need your help... Join the Booster Club* or PTSA* and become an ADDitions volunteer*. Help to support the Tigers as we build upon the rich history we stand upon. We will not be perfect. However, our effort in the classroom and on the field, court, track or sporting venue, will reflect our commitment to you -- our supporters. We appreciate YOU…Our STUDENT-athletes this season will show you just how much.
