Jones to join ECU men’s basketball. Former HCHS product, Manager to walk-on


"Jones chose to go to ECU without any inclination that he’d ever play for the Pirates. Still, he knew he wanted to stay involved with the game of basketball. So Gage help set him up with Erwin native W.A. Myatt, who is the program coordinator for Men’s Basketball Administration at ECU.

Jones joined the team as a manager and was put on the scout team as a freshman. He got the chance to practice against ECU’s starters and help prepare them for upcoming opponents. Jones was told that it was rare for managers to work their way up to walk-on status, but he just kept grinding. He worked many early mornings, late nights and long hours in between."

Sounds like he's put in some hard work, hopefully he can translate it to success on the b-ball court.

Go Pirates!
