Aaron Jones, a 5’11 guard, from Westover Christian Academy in Danville, VA has agreed to lace up his shoes for the Tigers next season. Jones led the Westover Bulldogs to a 22-6 record, winning the school’s first ever regional championship and making it’s first ever state championship appearance. Aaron ranked 1st on the team in 3pt fg and was 5th in the state of Virginia in assists with better than 7 per game. He has a high scoring game of 27 points this season, which included 7 three pointers. Aaron also finished this season with all-state tournament honors.
In the 2010-11 season, Jones led the Leesburg Christian Lions to the state championship, winning the school’s first state championship in school history. Last season was capped off by a 33 point effort versus school rival Evangel Christian, which the Lions had failed to beat for the past 10 seasons. Aaron closed out the game in dramatic fashion with a deep corner 3, his ninth of the night, at the buzzer to give the Lions the victory.
Aaron is a member of FCA and the Service Club. Aaron is the son of Jason Jones of Salem, VA who has coached basketball for the last 20 years, and Allison Lambert of Winston-Salem, NC who was also a state champion point guard in high school.
“We are happy to have Aaron as a Tiger,” said Coach Gary Bailey. “He distributes the ball well and can really shoot it from deep. He is a great young man and will fit into how we do things at Grace very well.”
