HIGHLIGHTS: Vonn Jones, Hartland

Vonn Jones has made his name popular in most Michigan homes with his standout play as a basketball player. For the past couple of years this hardwood phenom has spent his falls playing football just to stay busy. But this year Jones got rid of his tag of being a "basketball player just playing football" and has become a true "football player".

This season Hartland has raced out to a 9-2 record and will face Rockford Saturday in a regional final. Jones' growth as a football player has played a key role in Hartland's success. Jones never leaves the field as he handles punt return and kickoff return duties on top of playing receiver and corner.

Jones has become a big time playmaker and has made huge plays for Hartland this season, below is a hyperlink to a play in which Jones makes a 50 yard diving catch against Howell in the district championship. It is just one of many of Jones highlight plays.
