Wabash High School senior Matt Jones signed a letter of intent Friday to continue his football career at Concordia University in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Jones was a tackle, defensive end and nose tackle for the Apache football team, and also played basketball at WHS.
“I chose Concordia because I thought it would help me become a man,” he told The Paper of Wabash County. “It also will help my walk with God get better. It’s a good environment and a nice city.”

The Manchester High School senior played basketball growing up and was a member of the Squire team for three years. He decided to switch to wrestling for his senior season and had no idea what would be in store for him.
What I do care about as far as the NBA is concerned is how the Indiana Pacers match up against the other teams, past and present. About a month ago, I was invited to attend a Sunday evening Pacers game as they took on Miami.
