Could Highland Springs see an even bigger challenge this fall? Our #3 athlete returns to the 804 in time for his senior season.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in and around the city of Richmond. Continuing our countdown as the 3rd best senior prospect region-wide is Henrico quarterback Jalon Jones.
#3 Jalon Jones (2019 QB 6-3 190) – Henrico High School
Welcome back, Jalon Jones.
After a year at St. Frances (MD), Jones is back for his senior season at Henrico. Pair him up with our #5 athlete Jahad Carter and you have a pretty fearsome duo who will be set to do some damage offensively.
Jones has verbally committed to the University of Florida while Carter is committed to Virginia Tech.
Highland Springs has ruled the Capital District for several years. They are the barrier to any Region 5B team making the state championship game. Highland Springs is the three-time reigning state champion. This should be the year that Henrico has more of a say over who wins the district and who represents Region 5B in the state semifinals.
We’ll find out if the star power of Jalon Jones and Jahad Carter is enough to knock Highland Springs off their perch. The Warriors host Highland Springs in the middle of the season, Friday night, September 28. If both teams perform as expected this fall, they’re likely to meet again in November.
