Last season, Denison running back D.J. Jones was one of the more productive players at the Clas 4A level in the state of Texas. Jones rushed for over 26 touchdowns in leading Denison deep into the playoffs before an eventual loss to state champion Sulphur Springs derailed its title hopes. Jones averaged nearly 20 carries a game despite often playing only half a game and had a 400-yard, six touchdown performance against McKinney.
