Potomac State adds another key piece to keep up with the Joneses

Brandon Jones

Potomac State Men's Soccer Coach Ray Kiddy knows how important it is to have players to put the ball in the back of the net. He also knows it is just as important to have players that can prevent that from happening.

To that end, Kiddy has added a strong defender in Brandon Jones from James Wood High School in Winchester, Va.

Jones played for the Colonels all four years while at James Wood. While he played several different positions during his time as a Colonel, he developed into a strong defender with his high sense of awareness on the field and his ability to anticipate the flow of the game. He became a player that was highly committed and strong on both plays on the ground and balls in the air.

Jones led a defense that consistently denied penetrating runs into the Colonels end, virtually keeping all opponent's shots coming from outside the 18-yard mark.

Jones plans on studying Pre-Physical Therapy at Potomac State College.
