The electric Jones simply couldn't be contained, finishing with 203 yards on 21 carries. The junior back did it with three starting linemen out with injuries as he repeatedly dipped and danced around defenders.
"The kid's got a lot of ability, obviously," Walton head coach Rocky Hidalgo said. "He's a perfect fit for our offense. We get the big ugly guys up front blocking people and he runs where they ain't. I think under the circumstances, we ran the ball well. We got a good push up front and (Jones) did some things with the football in his hands."
Jones did all of his work in less than three quarters of work. His last carry, a 13-yard touchdown, around left end, gave the Raiders a 28-7 lead with four minutes left in the third. It was his tenth run of the night of at least 10 yards, and his performance marked the second time in three games that he's topped 200 yards rushing.
Jones downplayed his performance and credited his linemen and coaching staff. "I just try to be an all-purpose back," he said. "I use my eyes and I just hit it when I see it."
Campbell (0-3), which played competitively, particularly in the first half, fumbled on its ensuing drive and two plays later Walton scored on a nine-yard pass from Parker McLeod to Tim Dalton. Three plays later, D.J. intercepted a Campbell pass and returned it 32 yards to give Walton a 42-7 with 1 minute left in the third period.
Hidalgo said Walton (3-0) came out a little flat, but the Raiders still held a 21-7 lead at halftime, thanks to three touchdowns by Jones. Campbell, behind the running of Darius Harris, had some success moving the ball early, and Hidalgo let his players know at halftime that he wasn't satisfied with their play. They responded by totally shutting down the Spartans, who had just 14 total yards of offense in the second half. "Defensively, we kind of controlled the line of scrimmage a little better in the second half," Hidalgo said.
Campbell's lone score came on beautiful pass from Ricky James to Arviel Jenkins, who ran a fly pattern down the sideline for a 37-yard touchdown.
