Kevin S. Jones (born August 21, 1982) is a former American college and professional football player who was a running back in the National Football League (NFL) for six seasons. Jones played college football for Virginia Tech, and earned All-American honors. He was selected in the first round of the 2004 NFL Draft, and played professionally for the Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears of the NFL. Jones was born in Chester, Pennsylvania. He was a standout in football when he came to Cardinal O'Hara High School as a freshman. Coach Stratts had no choice but to put him in as a freshman. Jones broke many records at O'Hara and finished his career up with a Philadelphia Catholic League Championship. In that game he scored four touchdowns. He was the #1 overall recruit and could not decide between Penn State and Virginia Tech, eventually choosing to be a Hokie to the surprise of many. He said, "If you're a blue-chipper from Pennsylvania, you go to Penn State. But I've always been a little contrary. On the day of my press conference, I still hadn't decided between Virginia Tech and PSU. As I sat down in front of everybody, I had both jerseys with me.
