Miners hang hats on hometown guys
Aaron Jones is the face of this year’s Texas-El Paso Miners, and his twin brother Alvin might be UTEP’s next most prominent player.
Aaron, a 5-foot-10, 205-pound running back, was a 1,300-yard rusher last season. Alvin, a 5-11, 220-pound linebacker, is the top returning tackler on a team that plays Texas Tech on Saturday at Jones Stadium.
The Jones brothers probably thought they were capable of such all along.
Persuading others was the hard part.
