Check Out Young James Jones

James Jones will be close to home this weekend when the Green Bay Packers play the Oakland Raiders. He grew up in nearby San Jose, California and, as we’ve recently learned, part of his childhood wasn’t so great.

That’s because he spent much of it on the streets. Not as in a gang on the streets, but homeless.

That experience spurred Jones to start his charity, Love Jones 4 Kids, to help underprivileged kids. It also got him profiled by People this week.

Yes, that People, which we’re going to go ahead and assume usually reserves its real estate for piles of shit like the Kardashians. But this week old Jim Jones got himself some of that real estate!

Check out young Jim Jones at 11 and 8, respectively.

Finally, here’s the video they made with Jones talking about his charity.

    Always loved James Jones! End of the 3rd round. Guy wasn’t supposed to be a super star. But he pulled off a 14 TD year. And really came through in our offense until defenses figured out Clements. Those TD’s he had were HUGE! Big reason we are even in the hunt.

    Shit, his face is exactly the same at 8 years old as it is at 31, fuckin looks like Frylock.
