Top Prospect Sam Jones Of Thunderridge Will Wait On Recruiting Buzz

“I’m asked all the time where I’m leaning. To tell you the truth, I don’t think about it.” ThunderRidge will host Dakota Ridge in a nonleague game Thursday, and then Jones will head to Eugene for a look-see at Oregon. But other unofficial visits will be taxing, because the Grizzlies don’t have another Thursday game until Oct. 17. The 17-year-old with a common name has uncommon promise. He knows Oregon has tabbed him as its top line recruit, as has CU and CSU, which offered first. “He’s in a position of strength, which makes it a little easier,” Grizzlies coach Joe Johnson said.

‘Smallville’ actor Sam Jones III is headed to federal prison

She stumbled into the sport in college at East Carolina , where she went on a basketball scholarship. One day in 1982, Wayne Edwards, an East Carolina athletic official who was active in team handball, saw Jones playing in an intramural softball game and encouraged her to try out for the Olympic Sports Festival team. “Here is this man asking me to try out for a sport I’ve never heard of, and he’s telling me I have a chance to be on the Olympic team,” she remembers. “I thought, Come on, be for real.” She tried out anyway, and one month later she was playing in France on the U.S. national team. Even though Jones is past her prime, at 31, and admits her bruised body is burning out from the rugged play, she’s “still the player we go to,” says teammate Cindy Stinger, herself 34.

After [15] games, they told me they wanted to fire Scotty. I told them, `He should be Coach of the Year if he wins 20 games with this team.’ I asked who would be the next coach, because Elgin Baylor and I were the only assistants, and was told that `New Orleans wasn’t ready for a black head coach.’ They brought in someone else (Butch van Breda Kolff), who wasn’t real professional about some things. So one year of that was enough for me.” FanHouse: Who’s the greatest player you’ve ever seen? Sam Jones: “I can’t do that. Everyone has their own opinion. Michael Jordan won six NBA titles.
