Jerry Jones' grandson has record-setting performance in Highland Park comeback win

ARLINGTON -- John Stephen Jones left his legacy on the house his grandfather built.

Jones, the grandson of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, threw for a record 564 yards and four touchdowns —including the game-winning touchdown pass with 34 seconds remaining — to lift Highland Park to a 53-49 come-from-behind victory over Manvel and back-to-back UIL Class 5A Division I state championships, this time in front of 25,975 fans at AT&T Stadium.

“I wouldn’t trade this for anything in the world,” said Jones, the game’s Offensive MVP. “I’m so proud to be a part of this. I can’t say enough of how proud I am of this team. They fought to the very end and never gave up. This team is unbelievable.”

Manvel (15-1) took a 49-39 lead after Kam Scott returned the kickoff for a state-record 97 yards for a touchdown with 6:27 remaining.

3. Looks like he'll be a Razorback

... and we sure could use him as another building block to bring Arkansas back to prominence.

Now that Jones has his opportunity to play at Arkansas, it seems highly likely that’s where he will end up. He told SEC Country last spring he would ideally head to Fayetteville after high school.

“Yeah, that’s my school, for sure,” he said. “I’d like to end up there. If I ever get a chance to play at Arkansas, that’s for sure where I’d be going.”
