Reagan Jones, QB, 6-1, 185, Wichita Northwest

Wichita Northwest’s Reagan Jones is a true dual-threat quarterback and showed it his senior season.

Jones threw for 1,683 yards and rushed for 1,728 while tallying 39 total touchdowns in the process. For his career, Jones threw for 5,775 yards, rushed for 3,265 yards, and finished with 112 total touchdowns. 

Jones was also the leader of one of the state’s most potent offensive attacks at Northwest. The Grizzlies went 12-1 this past season and finished as the Class 5A State Runner Up for the second straight season. Although Northwest ended the season with a disappointing loss to Mill Valley in the championship, the Grizzlies still averaged over 51 points a game this season, including games of 70 or more points three times. In the 5A Sub-State Championship against Maize, Northwest scored 80 points and Jones set a career-high with 285 rushing yards. 

In his two seasons as a starter for the Grizzlies, Jones went 24-2. He will attend NCAA Division II Missouri Western next year. 

Wichita Northwest coach Steve Martin on Jones: "Reagan Jones is a great football player because of the work he puts in leading up to the game. His football IQ is off the charts and he uses his ability to breakdown a defense to his advantage on game nights.”

Jones was one of the quarterbacks highlighted in our #KSQBs feature in our 2019 Fall Football Preview. Check out Conor Nicholl's feature on Jones from that publication below:

As a sophomore, Reagan Jones had a solid season for Andover Central with 1,537 passing yards and a 17/15 TD/INT ratio. Jones then transferred to Wichita Northwest, the state’s No. 1 offense the last three years with multiple state records. In 2018, Jones piloted the Grizzlies’ high-tempo offense to another spectacular season with a state-best 726 points.

“Our goal is definitely a state title, we came up short last year, it all starts during the summer in the weight room,” Jones said entering the 2019 season.

Northwest went 12-1 and finished as state runner-up, tying the 1996 team for the best finish in school annals. Jones completed 118 of 206 passes for 2,414 yards with a 31/5 TD/INT ratio and set the school record for single season passing TDs.

Northwest had three rushers with at least 1,200 yards, including Jones who had 166 carries for 1,393 yards and 20 scores. The Grizzlies defeated rival Bishop Carroll, 23-22, in Week 1, and then 84-67 in the quarterfinals and tallied the most single game points in school history.

Jones was offered by University of North Dakota. According to Jones’ Twitter, he has been laser clocked running a 4.41 in the 40-yard dash with a 3.7 GPA and a 22 ACT. Northwest has enjoyed several great seasons, including sub-state in ’17 and quarterfinals in ’15 with coach Steve Martin. Jones took a knee to clinch the wild 67-60 semifinal victory versus Maize.
