Senior tailback Anthony Jones rushed for 204 yards on 37 carries and scored three touchdowns in the Model Secondary School for the Deaf's 27-0 victory over Quantico.
Jones' 37 carries broke the school record of 36 set by Marcus Taylor in 1977. As a freshman, Jones helped lead the Eagles' junior varsity to their first winning record ever. As a sophomore (playing flanker and cornerback), he set a school record for most interceptions (three) in a game, against Riverdale Baptist. Last year he set school records for most receptions in a game (12), against Quantico, most touchdowns in a game (five), against Florida School for the Deaf, and most receptions in a season (34).
So far this season, Jones has rushed for 723 yards on 133 carries and has scored 11 touchdowns.
"Anthony is a very hard worker," said Eagles Coach Andy Bonheyo.
Jones, who Bonheyo calls "Mr. Everything" also plays linebacker and leads the team in tackles with 49. He is also the team's kicker, punter and punt and kick returner.
"He may not be the best football player the school has ever had," said Bonheyo, "but I know for sure he is is the best all-around athlete in the school history."
