Jerry Jones watched his Cowboys get eliminated from the playoffs with a disappointing home-loss against Seattle, yesterday, but it wasn’t all disappointment for Jones at Jerry’s World over the weekend.
Jones’ grandson John Stephen Jones played in his grand dad’s stadium on Friday night for Highland Park High School in the Texas Class 5A State Championship game, and lit it up with title game records in completions (37), attempts (58), and passing yards (564) in a thrilling come from behind win against Manvel High School, 53-49.
Jerry Jones’ grandson, or no Jerry Jones’ grandson, this is one of the most insane high school football games you’ll ever see. Jones’ Highland Park team trailed all night, and by 10 with just under three minutes to play, but scored and recovered an onside kick, which led to the game winning score.
Incredibly, Manvel was stopped a yard short of the goal line on a last second pass, preserving the win for Highland Park, and their second straight state title.
Jones is listed as a 2-star prospect and currently has offers from SMU and Texas Tech, and Jerry’s alma mater, Arkansas. It will be interesting to see if he does anything at the next level.
Watch Jerry’s grand kid light up Jerry’s World under the Friday night lights.
