Marauders’ multi-sport standout Damon Jones signed his letter of intent to join the Muskingum University football team next season. “Coach Bartrum and Coach Willford got my name out there and one day I got a call from Coach Logan,” said Jones,” He came down here and visited us and then I went up for a visit. I really liked the community so I think its a good place for me.” Jones earned a special mention selection on the 2013 All-Southeast District team and helped Meigs to its best record since 2008. Damon was named third team All-Southeast District for the Marauder basketball team this past season. “Football is something I think I can succeed at and play at the next level,” said Jones. “There’s a lot of teamwork here, it’s a big family thing and it means a lot to me that these guys helped us be successful enough for college coaches to look at us. Without everybody on this team I wouldn’t be where I am today.” Jones holds a 2.75 GPA and is ranked 67th in the class of 2014. Damon plans on majoring in Communications and minoring in psychology. “Damon has really grown as a man,” said MHS head coach Mike Bartrum. “He was a boy that wasn’t making good decisions and now he’s a man making really good decisions and going on to play college football.” Pictured, sitting in the front are Damon Jones and Marauders coach Mike Bartrum, while standing in the back row are MHS principal Steve Ohlinger and Marauders assistant Cassady Willford.
