Cody Jones was all smiles in the 4th quarter

Cody Jones was all over the field for the Sabino Sabercats Thursday night in Tucson. He played the tight end spot for the first time and looked very natural. On defense, he was disrupting the Sahuaro offense all evening and was also a force on special teams.

Height: 6-5
Weight: 230
40 time: 4.72
Bench: 275
Squat: 400
Clean: 300
Vertical:'28
From: Tucson, Arizona
High School: Sabino

Cody caught two passes from his newly acquired tight end spot, one going for 36 yards, completed a few key passes including a 53-yarder, and had three sacks on defense with double-digit tackles. Jones also booted a couple of 40-plus yard punts as he lifted his squad to a 29-6 win.

"It felt good to come out and get a win in the first game against a rival like Sahuaro," Jones told TheInsiders. "A lot of the guys on the team hadn't beaten Sahuaro before so it was good to get that win for them."

Cody looked like he was hobbling at times during the game, but he denied any ailment. "That was just me sucking wind," he explained laughing. "I got a little tired a couple times."

Since Jones never comes off the field for Sabino, it is easy to see why.

It is obvious that Cody has talent at different positions so where he will play in college is anyone's guess. He looked pretty comfortable at tight end but then he would look equally as good at defensive end. California has offered him as a d-end and schools like Colorado and Purdue see him on offense. Arizona is also looking at him as a tight end. He blocks well, moves well, and has very good hands. Jones also has the frame to add quite a bit of weight.

A couple of Sabino juniors to watch are running back Glyndon Bolasky and defensive end/fullback, Brooks Reed.
