We welcome Southwest Virginia native, Thomas Jones. We’ve watched Thomas on the field on Friday Nights. You’ve seen him on Saturdays running the ball for the University of Virginia. And you’ve seen on Sundays in the NFL. There are less than 30 people to ever rush for 10,000 yards in the NFL and he is one of them, He has appeared in the Pro-Bowl and a Super Bowl and now he’s made the transition to the acting world with roles on the TV series’ “Being Mary Jane” and “Shameless”. He has appeared on the big screen in the hit movie “Straight Outta Compton” and is currently working other projects. And if that isn’t enough he’s also the CEO of multiple companies. It is an honor to have Thomas Q. Jones as our guest on the If It’s Sports podcast!
We get into the early years at Powell Valley, the recruiting process, freshman year at UVA, the motivation for the NFL, the transition to acting, current projects, and how to keep up with Thomas nowadays. These are just some of the topics we cover in this special episode.
