After missing the previous two weeks with an injury, Jones-Robinson returned to the Silent Warriors line up and rushed for 194-yards and two touchdowns in their 44-14 victory.
His performance earned him The Daily Home’s Player of the Week honors.
“Two weeks ago he had a concussion,” ASD head coach Paul Kulick said. “He didn’t like to miss a game, so he made it up last week. He was upset seeing the boys play, he wanted to join. I was saying be patient, you need to heal.”
The Silent Warriors (3-1) are off to a strong start. Kulick believes their loss in Week 2 was an eye opener for his team.
“Geneva County really taught us a hard lesson that we need to improve and get better. Since then we have been practicing hard, hopefully we can continue to play well every week now.”
Jones-Robinson credits the Silent Warriors linemen for his performance against Gaylesville.
“Our linemen did a good job and they made it easy for me to run through the hole,” Jones-Robinson said. “Everything is just easy for me, our lineman are very good. I am doing my job.”
Jones-Robinson said he looks up to one of the players that came before him. He said the 2009 graduate really taught him a lot about football and life.
“I look up to Darius Flowers,” Jones-Robinson said. “He is my role model. He taught me not to complain, not to talk about the coach and to listen to the coach.”
The Silent Warriors travel to take on county for Fayetteville tonight. Jones-Robinson said he’s prepared to do his job against the Wolves.
“I am ready to play Fayetteville,” Jones-Robinson said. “I am so ready. I am going to do my job. Last year was my first time playing running back, so I wasn’t as experienced. This time I am experienced and I am going to do my job.”
Next week’s game against Maryland will determine whether the Silent Warriors are going to reach their goal of winning the National Championship.
Even though the Silent Warriors have been waiting to take on Maryland, Kulick said his team will be focused on the task at hand tonight.
“We know Fayetteville is a good team,” Kulick said. “They lost to four very good teams. Our boys are ready. They have practice all week good. After that we have a big game against Maryland School for the Deaf. Maryland has won six straight National Championships, so I told our boys not to think about Maryland. We have to focus on Fayetteville first then we will work together and get ready for Maryland.”
