Princeton Jones understands he's not alone when he steps onto the field each Friday night with the Starkville Yellowjackets.
With the thought of having teammates like Darius Grayer, Raphael Leonard, AJ Brown, Jaquez Horsley and others around him gives Jones the confidence that he doesn't have to do everything by himself.
Jones has started two games at quarterback as a senior for the Yellowjackets and he has found out real quick who his friends are out on the field.
"I've got weapons around me so I don't have to do a lot," Jones said. "All I have to do is get them the ball and I know it will be a touchdown. It's all about execution and if we don't turn the ball over, this offense is dangerous and we can put more than 28 points on the board in a game."
