The defensive Jones shines on Day 2

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Arizona Football concluded its second day of camp on Thursday with an efficient practice that took less than two hours. 

Play of the Day:

Junior safety Tellas Jones stepped in front of an Anu Solomon pass during 7-on-7 action, snatching it from the waiting hands of receiver Samajie Grant. The play helped the defense narrowly edge the offense for the second-straight day in the modified practice scoring rules. 

Stat of the Day:

In 2014, Tellas Jones registered 18 tackles as key reserve in the secondary and a prominent member of the coverage units in the kicking game. Then a redshirt sophomore, Jones blocked a second-quarter punt that set up a touchdown in Arizona’s Territorial Cup victory last November.

Up Next: 

Arizona is scheduled to hold its second preseason camp practice on Friday at 6 p.m. Preseason camp practices are generally closed to the media and public unless otherwise announced.
