South Oak Cliff’s Emmett Jones, a former Skyline assistant, gets win in first game as head coach

South Oak Cliff’s Emmett Jones, a former Skyline assistant, gets win in first game as head coach | aCommunityAffair Oak Cliff | Scoop.it
I talked to South Oak Cliff Emmett Jones about his team’s 4 p.m. game during last Saturday’s return of temps near 100. “It was rough,” he said.

But it wasn’t a rough start for the Golden Bears as Jones won his first game as a head coach. Jones, the former offensive coordinator for Skyline, watched SOC cruise past Arlington Segin, 32-13.

Quarterback Kenneth Author threw two TD passes and rushed for one, running back Devin Williams rushed 17 times for 192 yards (more than 11 yards per carry) and Anthony Smith had four receptions for 90 yards and two TDs. On defense, linebacker Richard Franklin — who also played some at running back — led the way with 12 tackles.

It was a nice start for SOC, which jumped from No. 19 to No. 15 in this week’s area 4A rankings.

“We need to sharpen up everything,” Jones said Sunday.

But if SOC plays fundamentally sound, he added, the team has a high ceiling.

“If we can at least grade out at B+ or higher our assignments,” Jones said, “we’re going to be tough to beat.”
