The Dragons were a perfect 15-0 at home during this two-year stretch. Junction City finished Jones’ first season as Class AAA Runner-Up and led their classification in total offense both seasons. The 2017 team racked up over 6,000 yards of total offense and 88 touchdowns. Jones was named 2018 Class AA Coach of the Year by both Hooten’s Arkansas Football and the Little Rock Touchdown Club.
