Jones gained his experience as the head coach for South Cobb High School and Kennesaw Mountain High School. He has not led a team since he left Kennesaw Mountain after the 2009 season.
The Wolfpack enter the year in a new region, 5-AAAAA, where they will face neighboring schools like Woodland and Allatoona in addition to familiar foes like East Paulding and Hiram. Jones said some key returning players include RB/OLB Cornelius Collins, WR/DB Matt Mixon, OL/DL Michael Barday, and FB/LB Jordan Rajnaugh.
In 2011, the Wolfpack’s only region win came against Hiram as they beat the Hornets 34-14. DL Josh O’Kelley from North Paulding was named to the AAAA Region 5 North first team while WR Joel Brooks, QB Zach Cummins and OL Blake Pinkett were named to the second team. Marcus Anderson was named to the first team as a punter and on the second team as a wide receiver. Nelson Bansemer and Jordan Rajnaugh were listed as honorable mention for the region team.
