Marcus Jones, a key component in the return game

Every time Marcus Jones takes the field to receive the punt, his teammates expect him to take it to the house — and for good reason.

“You see (Jones) back there and it’s like give him some space, he’s a green bean,” said junior linebacker Derek Parish. “ I love watching him play. I love it.”

The UH punt return team knows that if they simply execute their blocks, there is a high likelihood that Jones will blow by defenders and be standing in the end zone moments later.

“I just trust my blockers, trust my teammates,” Jones said.
