I met him (Friday) in person in the locker room,” said Jones. “He seems like an unbelievable guy. Family oriented, just loves his teammates. He embraced me. That tells you what type of man he is. He didn’t have to do that. So glad to play for someone like that and I can’t wait to develop with him.”'

Olean Times Herald reports: '“Just in terms of mutual respect ... that’s key in any relationship,” he said. “I certainly came up one way, he came up in a similar fashion through this business.
