The son of Stacie and Andy Jones of Nashville, AJ has a 4.25 GPA and is taking honors classes and Advanced Placement U.S. history.
AJ is junior class president and also is a member of the Beta Club and Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Outside of school, he is an active member of his youth group at Holly Grove Baptist Church in Spring Hope and works during the summer on his family’s tomato farm. AJ also plays baseball, representing Southern Nash in the N.C. Powerade Games last summer and playing for the Tri-State Arsenal Scout travel team.
