Stan Paul Jones
Birth: Nov. 24, 1931
Blair County

Death: May 21, 2010

Hall of Fame Professional Football Player. For thirteen seasons (1954 to 1966), he played at the right-guard, left-guard, right-tackle, left-defensive tackle and right-defensive tackle positions in the National Football League with the Chicago Bears and Washington Redskins. Born Stanley Paul Jones, he attended Lemoyne High School in Pennsylvania and played collegiate football at the University of Maryland. While with the Terrapins, he was a member of their 1953 National Champion squad, and earned All-American honors that year. He was selected by the Bears during the 5th round of the 1953 NFL Draft (future choice), and appeared in 157 career regular season games, earning Pro-Bowl status seven consecutive seasons (1955 to 1961), and All-Pro recognition four-times (1955 to 1956, 1959 to 1960). During the course of his career Jones established himself as a durable pass-blocker, and was one of the earliest players to utilize weightlifting as an effective method for better conditioning. He was a member of the Bears' team that appeared in the 1956 NFL Championship Game (defeated by the New York Giants 47 to 7), and was a key player on the Bears' squad that defeated the Giants 14 to 10 for the 1963 NFL Championship Title. Following his playing career, he served as an assistant coach on the Denver Broncos', Buffalo Bills', Cleveland Browns' and New England Patriots' staffs. Jones was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1991, and enshrined in the College Football Hall of Fame in 2000. He was named to the University of Maryland Athletics Walk of Fame in 1991. (bio by: C.S.)
