Christian Life boys basketball coach Cedric Jones guided the Eagles to a 1A regional championship in 2015. He seized the opportunity to coach his son Isaiah, who was a senior on the team this past year, and was named a 13 Sports Authority Athlete of the Week after CLS' regional title. The elder Jones will now make the leap on the coaching ladder.
Jones will take over as head coach of Cedar Valley College in the Dallas, Texas region, where most of his family calls home. Jones first moved to Rockford in 1988, and concluded his long tenure at the NAC school, leading the Eagles to their first regional crown in a decade.
The 13 Sports Authority spoke exclusively to Jones, and you can hear his interview in the above video.
