They got his age wrong. He graduated in 1995, drafted by the Skins. Went to JFK, if I remember correctly.
I remember Greg Jones the linebacker, however it makes no sense that he would be 49 years old as of now. I'm pretty sure he played for CU in the 90s.
I wonder if that's just a typo.
I recall Greg Jones playing for the 'Skins as well...his age has to be wrong.
Our Greg Jones had a decent NFL career:
I remember him being in a Nike commerical about Barry Sanders, with a clip of Jones as a Skin demonstrating how to contain Sanders.
This is not our Greg Jones
CU's Greg Jones is now 35
I do remember him. He was a good LB.
Yeah 6-6? he wasn't that big.. Good LB though..
. Decent college career although I thought he played through 96 with the Buffs.. He was there during Slick Rick's start I believe. We missed him and Russell after 96.. :sad1:
Perhaps the paper got the age right and this is "our" Greg Jones. it's a common enough name, certainly two former players could be "Greg Jones."
DEFINITELY NOT the Greg Jones we are all thinking of. Greg Jones was black, went to JFK, won the Golden Helmet Award, and played DE/LB. Greg was also NOT 6'6". Perhaps there was another Greg Jones that played ten years prior, but these are not the same person.
just checked one of my media guides...if he played he never lettered
I have an email into Plati about this Greg Jones. Dave will know the scoop here
Maybe he played for Creighton. :smile2:
Here's the scoop per Plati, he played at Littleton HS, was an offensive tackle at CU, never lettered, got some PT as a reserve, played under Fairbanks. FWIW, under today's criteria he would have lettered.
I suspect that the Post just got theirs wires crossed when looking for Greg Jones CU football regrading him playing LB.
The Post getting their facts wrong when writing about CU? Say it isn't so.:sad2:
He was the fourth linebacker in the Greg Biekert - Chad Brown - Ted Johnson - Greg Jones foursome. All had excellent NFL careers.
Matt Russell was a backup.
Those 4 guys didn't start together. Biekert and Brown left after the 92 season, Ted Johnson left after 94, and Greg Jones played 93-96. Russell started from 94 on.
Separate names with a comma.
