Freshman Offensive Lineman Emery Jones Gets Gordon

Hometown hero Emery Jones joins the G Team ahead of his first season as an offensive lineman for the Tigers.

Callin’ Baton Rouge! Our law firm is excited to share that we’ve signed a Name, Image, & Likeness (NIL) deal with Emery Jones, a Baton Rouge native and freshman offensive lineman for the Tigers Football team.

Growing up between Plaquemines and Baton Rouge, Jones’ heart has bled purple and gold from day one. Jones received his first college football offer from Coach Ed Orgeron, former head coach for the Tigers Football team. His first offer was soon followed by several others from colleges across the nation, resulting in 14 total offers. While Jones was faced with a variety of choices, his dream of playing for the Tigers trumped all others.

“I’m a sucker for a hometown hero. Emery’s love for the Tigers, coupled with his admirable attitude and impressive high school stats, makes him the ideal student athlete to partner with my firm. I have faith that he will do grand things with the Tigers.”

The 4-star prospect played high school football at Baton Rouge’s Catholic High School, which sits just 10 minutes away from Death Valley. Jones was named 5A first team All-State in 2020 and 2021 after helping the CHS Bears win back-to-back Division I state titles. Also playing as a key member of his high school basketball team, Jones has a gift for dedication and versatility.
