My son had his first season with Coach CJ and from start to finish I could see how quick he was improving. Coach CJ is very energetic and push my son all the way through his training session. Looking forward to seeing my son’s progression as he continues to work with Coach CJ.
Great coach/trainer! Doing a awesome job with my 8 year old. Does a great job pushing my son to new limits and encourages him along the way...I can already see my sons confidence growing. Cant wait to see my son continue to grow and improve under coach CJ's guidance
CJ Jones is a great athlete but even a better person. He is never taken down first touch and often drags several players with him for extra yardage.
CJ is an extremely hard working player and coach, who diligently studies game film of upcoming opponents and assists with game prep.
CJ coached RBs and LBs during his time in Mersin and was open to sharing his knowledge to assist in improving the players around him.
He works hard on the field and in the weight room.
He is an extremely intelligent person and you can see this in his game play and preparation.
He is a versatile athlete that played both RB and Slotback for us.
There are no negatives about this player
6 touchdowns in his first 3 games
Over 100 yard per game average.
Over 100 yards receiving in games as well.
CJ is extremely positive and willing to learn and enjoy new cultures and languages.
He is not a player that sits alone at home. He gets out and enjoys the people. Every time we went out he was getting asked for photos and was very obliging to people.
He has to be the most positive person that I have ever coached. He focuses his energy on being positive.
I would recommend CJ to any team looking at him and I would love to have him join me in the future.
Me and Cochise (Cj) were teammates for the Mersin mustangs for the 2017 season. And it was definitely a pleasure to have him as a brother on the field and off.
Cj brings to a team the perfect lead by example mindset, with a great attitude always positive, he never complains he always looks at the bright side of things. Cochise has a vision for every situation he sets foot in and he will make that vision come to light. Hes always happy and smiling until it was time to battle on the field. When he hits the weight room, practice, or game field he is ready to work and do whatever needs to be done to win. Sometimes even helping with game planning.
He understands that part of being an import is to teach what he has learned to the other players in the system and help the game grow.
Cochise is the ultimate motivator he knows how to help the team or an individual push for that extra effort, it was several times he gave young players that extra motivation to make plays or get on the field.
Cj also brings a competitor, he comes to a team with the sole purpose of winning a championship. He doesnt care if thats being a receiver, running the ball, blocking, or being a decoy he is truly an unselfish player. He sets goals for himself and he will stop at nothing to see those goals achieved and surpassed. I loved blocking for Cj because I knew he was giving his all back there and if i did my job he was going to do his. Signing him would bring a talented, hardworking, positive, competitive, God fearing man who anyone would be proud to coach or call a teammate.
Cant explain how he focus for every game and every practice.He is the best import player in europe i have ever seen so far.Not only his football skills but also his personality is perfect out of the field.No matter how bad things happen he leads the team.I'm trying to say everyone can be football player but cj jones is a professional football player.It was a great experience to play with him.

I had the pleasure of sharing the backfield with CJ whilst playing for the 2018 Algarve Sharks. Without any doubt CJs athletic abilities were obvious from day 1, which is firmly backed by his profound knowledge and passion for the game.
We were roommates for the duration of the stay in Portugal, and when we were not either in the gym or doing a field workout, CJ would be found meticulously assessing game film of up-coming opponents and devising both offensive, and defensive game plans for the team to move forward in, to great success, and generally aiding in my progression as a QB reading a defence and situational audibles to call.
As a player, CJ's impact is immediate, explosive and devastating. In our first game of the season, first play, we had a simple dive called. CJ takes it 60+ yards to the house. You truly feel as any time he touches the ball, he has the ability to turn it into 6, as he not only has the physical skills to make NFL defences miss, but he has already done the amount of film work to know exactly where the green grass is to be found. When lined up at the WR/Slot position, there is no drop off in productivity, as his speed plus route running ability will turn him to a go to WR on any roster.
As a person, his positive personality and charisma is truly infectious, and a joy to be around. I firmly believe you will be hard pressed to find a player more dedicated on and off the field, with the Football IQ and playing ability of Mr Jones, and any team looking to sign him, will be signing a player of Championship material. As a QB I honestly felt that with CJ in the backfield with me, there is no team capable of stopping us.

I played with CJ in Portugal for the Algarve Sharks during the 2017/18 season.
I can safely say that he is one of the best athletes I have ever played with, and also a great person, a team player, and a leader, on and of the field.
The way he focus and gets in the "zone" come gameday is incredible, and his energy and intensity during the game are contagious!
He also helped me personaly grow a lot as a player, as he is also a great coach.
Hit me up anytime if you have a question about Cj.
