BOL begins a week-long look at Outland Trophy winner Barrett Jones, who can honestly say that his football accomplishments are exceeded by what he does away from the game:
Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.
Awesome article Chris!
Great article chris!
love it! Roll Tide! Man...great guy and part of a Historic Time at Bama!
Fine young man from a fine family - hope he has a great year at center!
Great read about a GREAT young man.
Nice article Chris and Jones is a quality young man!

He is special, there is no doubt about it both on and off the field. Bama fans better not take him for granted because it may be a long time before someone with his skills and multi position ability play on the OL again. It would not suprise me to see Barrett win the Remington this year and be drafted in the top 5 in the NFL next year, that's how special of a player he is.
Thanks Chris. Good article about a great young man. RTR!

Great piece on an outstanding young man, thanks Chris.
Stories like this make me proud to be associated with UA. I'll be honest, it is very nice to win but even more so when you know you have a guy like Barrett a part of the program.
Well done, a special young man and great ambassador for UA
With the success of GMc and Barrett, we are cornering the market for the elite nerdy red heads of college football!
May GOD bless him and keep him safe...........he may one day help this country.......it has been great to watch him play...........and here we set for one more year..........we Bama fans are truly Blessed..........thanks, Chris..........RTR
Nothing but class.
Anyone remember when I said I felt this guy could go down as one of the greats to play for the Tide? I still believe it.
