Willie Jones Most Inspirational Player Award

In June 1994, Willie Jones had everything going for him. He was young, handsome, intelligent and had been awarded a four-year scholarship to Cornell University. Then, on the terrible, tragic night of June 17, a sudden act of violence ended those dreams and the promise he offered not only to us, but to the world he would have served.We at the Walter J. Zable/San Diego Chapter of the National Football Foundation vowed that Willie would not be forgotten. We could think of no more fitting nor more deserved honor than to name our Most Inspirational Player Award in his memory. Click here:  Willie Jones Award  to learn more about this award.
