Recruiting Interview: WR Kyle Jones, Calvary Baptist Academy

WR Kyle Jones, Calvary Baptist Academy

Calvary Baptist WR Kyle Jones is an exciting player as he is not one of the biggest guys on the field as he only stands 5’9 at 190 lbs but he is quick and explosive and is a threat to make a 5 yard gain into a 70 yard touchdown. He is quick enough and fast enough to outrun people at the same time has enough power to break tackles and run people over. Kyle Jones plays wide receiver right now but don’t be surprised if he changes positions in college. “Kyle is listed as a WR for Calvary Baptist but could be a running back in college,” Lee Brecheen said. “He is underrated and very athletic. Hunter’s also very fast and could return kickoffs and punts for a small D-1 school.” Kyle Jones has the versatility to play running back and receiver and could be Calvary Baptist’s secret weapon for the team to reach the state championship for the second time in three years. Meet Kyle in today’s recruiting interview as he talks about his versatility, last season, and his goals for this season!
