Christion Jones honored

Posted: Updated:

Alabama has the week off before next week's big showdown at Texas A&M.

The Tide handled Virginia Tech over the weekend with a (35-10) win. Alabama scored on offense and defense, but the story of the night was the special teams play of Christion Jones.

Early in the 1st quarter, Christion Jones returned a punt 72 yards for the first touchdown of the game. He then added a 94 yard kickoff return in the 2nd quarter. Jones becomes the first Tide player ever to score two non-offensive touchdowns in one game.

The junior out of Minor High was honored today as the SEC Special Teams Player of the Week. He was also named the Walter Camp National Player of the Week.
