The St. Louis Attack adds a shut down corner to their already stout secondary. The Attack signed Terrance Jones today to sure up their secondary. Jones is a graduate of Booker High School in Sarasota, Florida, and played his college football at Iowa University and Division 1A powerhouse Eastern Arizona. Jones, or as his teammates call him Fly, stands 5’9” and weighs in at 188 pounds. Jones has an impressive pro career, spending time on the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL practice squad, The Orlando Predators of the AFL, and the Florida Tarpons. While with the Tarpons Jones was a two time Defensive Player of the Year, and has been touted as one of the best corners in Professional Indoor Football. “Terrance has great experience in the secondary and can be used as a corner or safety,” stated Head Coach Chris McKinney, “He is a shut down corner that can take the opposing teams biggest threat away, he is the definition of a shut down corner.”
Terrance “Fly” Jones will allow the defense to put more pressure on the quarter back, because of his ability to guard any receiver one on one. This will open up an extra player in the already impressive pass rush. Jones comes from a family full of athletes. Jones’ Brothers and Fathers have played in the NFL. Jones is very family oriented and has learned a lot from his family about what it takes to excel on the football field.
Terrance Jones on joining the Attack, “I have know Chris (McKinney) and Andrew (Haines) from our days with the Tarpons and I am looking forward to playing for them. I know they are committed to winning. I look forward to putting on a show and giving the great Attack fans something to cheer about.”
Jones recorded 23 interceptions, and returned 6 of those for touchdowns during his two-year run as Defensive Player of the Year. He also had 7 kick returns for touchdowns and 86 tackles while cementing himself as one of the best corner in Professional Indoor Football.
“We are just a few pieces away from being a truly dominant team,” Attack Owner Andrew Haines stated, “With the addition of Terrance, opposing offenses will not be looking forward to playing the Attack this season.”
