Stampede Sign Jerell "JJ" Jones
HARRISBURG, PA (December 13, 2012) - Harrisburg Stampede Head Coach, Bernie Nowotarski announced today that WR/KR Jerell Jones has signed with the Stampede for the 2013 Season.
JJ attended Roosevelt HS in Yonkers, New York where he still resides and works. At Roosevelt JJ was responsible for 4194 All-Purpose yards and countless other football and track records. JJ's accomplishments landed him in Kingston, Rhode Island and at URI. His career included being an All-Conference player on the field and an All-Academic student in the classrooms. He still holds or is in the top 10 all time of at least 7 URI football records. Just a side note. JJ played against Stampede Owner and New Orleans Saint, Marques Colston four times while they were both in college.
JJ is no stranger to the arena game as he played with the San Jose Sabercats in the AFL. He also spent time in the CFL with the Montreal Alouettes and time over-seas in Germany. Coach Nowotarski saw JJ play this summer as he was a part of the Chambersburg Cardinals. "JJ is the type of player that as soon as I saw him play, I wanted him to be with us during our season. At 5'8" 185lbs, JJ plays hard, runs hard, runs fast, runs solid routes and has great hands and off the field he is a gentlemen, we couldn't pass him up. Our relationship this summer with Chambersburg has been a real plus for both our players who played this summer and the Cardinal players coming to play for the Stampede" commented Nowotarski
