Fresno City College Running Back Nate Jones was named the NCFC National Division Offensive Player of the Week after his performance helped the Rams defeat Modesto College 55-42.

Jones, who had 29 carries for 207 yards and four touchdowns carried the Rams to victory vs the Pirates.

Jones has been on a tear since week 5 when he scored two touchdowns to help defeat rival Reedley College in the Battle of the Pump.

Over the last 5 games Jones has averaged 131 yards and has scored eight touchdowns.

“As far as being named Offensive Player of the Week, that goes along with the rest of the people on our offense,” Jones said. “They are all doing their thing to make sure that I get where I need to go.”

“To be honest, I’d rather just win,” said Jones. “I just try to do all I could do.”
