Ty Jones – Chaffin’s Safety


Marissa Goodwin, Writer

Ty Jones, number 20 on the field, is a safety for Chaffin Jr. High’s 9th grade football team. There are many things he enjoys about being on the team, but his favorite is hitting people. This is because he likes the feeling of contact and the sound. However, his least favorite thing is having to remember all of the plays. There are so many things to remember and it takes a lot of work to make sure you don’t forget anything. A goal Ty has for this year is to win conference. 

A way Ty handles pressure during big games is by breathing his way through it and thinking about what needs to be done. Some other things Ty does is play second base for Southside’s baseball team and he plays basketball for Chaffin. He is planning on playing football for Southside next year. 

Some interesting things about Ty is that his favorite color is green. If he could play on any team in the NFL, he would play on the GreenBay Packers. The reason for this is because they were the first team he watched on TV. And his favorite subject is English, because he likes to read. Someone he looks up to is Aaron Rogers because he is a good athlete on and off the field. 

When he has free time Ty is practicing baseball because he would like to get better and play at his very best. Even though he does enjoy football, baseball is his favorite sport.
