This week’s Good Day Prep Star of the Week is Lyons Township Senior running back Jaime Jones.
Jones led the Lions to their second straight come-from-behind playoff win last week, scoring five touchdowns in LT’s 34-31 overtime victory over Glenbrook South.
Jaime rushed for a season high 174 yards, and scored his fourth td on the night tied the game with 1:38 to go. Then in overtime, it was Jones' touchdown that gave LT the win.
The dramatic finish sends the Lions to the state quarterfinals! Jones dedicated the victory to Lyons Township freshman Kelli O'Laughlin, who was murdered last month.
Congrats to Jones. Coach Kurt Weinberg and the Lions take on top rated Loyola Academy Saturday afternoon.
