All-Pioneer Football League tailback De’Shawn Jones wants to break his own single-season rushing record, powering the Fighting Camels offense for his senior season.
Jones, Campbell’s all-time leading rusher, enters the 2016 campaign confident after ranking 18th in the FCS last season for rushing yards per game. The Fighting Camels workhorse back has picked up 1,991 yards on the ground over his career, hoping to help guide the Campbell Camels to their first winning season since 2011.
Featuring an offensive line with two returning All-PFL performers, Jones trusts his protection and feels the Fighting Camels could be even more explosive this season. Here’s De’Shawn Jones in his own words for our exclusive Candid Camel interview.
The Fighting Camels open the regular season at Barker-Lane Stadium on Thursday night, September 1 against Bluefield College. Follow @GoCamelsFB on Twitter and Instagram for the latest updates before this week’s opener.
