UPDATED: Saturday, April 14, 2012 - 12:34pm

Multi-talented Richton, Miss. native JaCoby Jones took LSU by storm when he joined the team in the fall of 2010. As a freshman, he refused to let his youth keep him from dominating the field, and he started all 56 games as a second baseman.

With an air of confidence and a portfolio of experience, the 2011 Louisiana Freshman of the Year makes an impact every time he steps on the field.

Drafted out of high school, he instead opted to play for the Tigers and grow in his maturity and in his ability on the field.

"The players that get drafted out of LSU became better men and better players while they were here," Jones said. "LSU is a great place. The fans are amazing, the coaching staff is great, and it's probably the best field in the country as far as Double-A, minor leagues, college, everything. This is a great place to be."

Aside from his growth as a player, his resume' has exploded with accolades since his time at LSU, including being named Freshman All-SEC by the league coaches and Freshman All-American by Collegiate Baseball and by Baseball America.

With big dreams, he won't stop there. His main goal for this season is to make it to the College World Series.

"Getting to Omaha is the main thing I want to do, because last year we didn't make it," he said. "I really want us to get to Omaha, and I'm working to help the team get better as much as I can."

The sophomore is not wasting any time in achieving his goals. With two years left of eligibility, he continues to push himself and always plays to his full potential.

"I just do what I can every single day to be the player God wanted me to be," Jones said. "I do whatever the team needs me to do whenever I can. I always do what I can to help the team."

Jones exhibited his dedication to his team when he transitioned from second base to center field after his freshman season, devoting his offseason to training for the outfield. After this season began, circumstances moved the dependable player back to his second base position, and he still achieved success.

"I like playing infield, and I like playing outfield too," he said. "It's whatever the team needs. Whatever the coach wants me to do, I'll do it."

His confidence on the field comes from his impressive athleticism that allows him the capability of playing any position on the field. As a former high school football player, he features a take-charge attitude and aggressiveness on the field and at the plate.

"When I see a fastball on the ground, I'm aggressive," Jones said. "I'm just an aggressive and tough player. I would say I got some of that from playing football."

His faith in the team and the determination he displays have paid off this season.

"Our record is pretty good," he said. "We're playing well, and our pitching's doing really well. We're having a good season so far."

Jones himself is having an impressive season so far, as his athleticism and hard work earned him the role of leadoff hitter. In the recent series against Arkansas, Jones collected a career-best four hits in the first game.

With the leadership and athletic capabilities that Jones possesses, he is a strong asset to the Purple and Gold, and he will continue to do all that he can to lead the team to success.
