Oaks Christian star to play in All-American Bowl
West Team (roster)
Westlake Village, Calif.
6-0, 190, 4.5
Jones in action
No team has taken high school football and recruiting by storm like Westlake (Calif.) Oaks Christian. So when Rivals.com began the selection process for the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl, it's only natural that several of the Lions' elite prospects play a big role in the game.
One of those big-time players is Marshall Jones, and the 6-foot, 190-pound safety is excited about representing the West team in the game that will be played on Jan. 4 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on ESPNU.
That national stage is something Jones is used to playing on because Oaks Christian has played several games on national television. This time around, Jones will be playing for a new team. He'll also be playing to show people why he's ranked by Rivals.com as the No. 47 player in the nation.
"I want to show people that I'm a legit recruit," Jones said. "I also want to show them that I'm really good at what I do. They're going to see a player that's versatile and can do a number of different things. I plan to make some big plays."
People are also going to see a player that's heading to USC. "It's always been a dream of mine to play for USC ever since I moved out here," Jones said. "USC will also offer me the best education. That's the main thing. With football, they'll let me go out and prove that I'm a good football player. Basically, they'll give me a chance to play and that's all I want."
