SEARCY – Harding University senior safety Josh Jones garnered the first of what should be many postseason awards Tuesday as he was named 1st Team Daktronics All-Super Region 2.
NCAA Division II football has its teams grouped into four Super Regions. Super Region 2 includes Gulf South Conference, South Atlantic Conference and Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference schools.
Jones, a native of Carson, Calif., transferred to Harding for his senior season from Minnesota-Moorhead. In his one season as a Bison, Jones led Harding with 94 tackles and was among the nation's leaders with eight interceptions and 19 total passes defended.
As a 1st-Team honoree, Jones, who had the most votes of any safety on the All-Region ballot, will now move to the Daktronics All-America ballot.
The team is sponsored by Daktronics, Inc., an acknowledged world leader in scoring, timing and programmable display systems for virtually every sport at every level of competition. Voting for the All-Region and All-America teams is powered by ATHLETICSITE.com.
