LOGAN, Utah -- - Utah State football player Aaron Jones was voted USU's athlete of the week by the local media panel, it was announced today.
Jones, a senior from Casa Grande, Ariz., helped lead Utah State to a 31-14 thumping over Big West rival Idaho this past Saturday at Romney Stadium. The 5-foot-11 Jones hauled in eight receptions for a career-best 233 yards, and one touchdown against the Vandals. The 233 yards is the third most in USU history (just 10 shy of the record). In the game, Jones averaged 29.1 yards per catch and it was the third time this year he has gone over the 100-yard plateau (seventh of his career).
Jones and the rest of his Aggie teammates will be gunning for their third straight Big West victory Saturday when Utah State will host Arkansas State at 3:05 p.m. This will be the last-ever BWC game in Logan.
