Otterbein defensive back Dominic Jones, a junior from Columbus Brookhaven High School, has been named to the All-America first team as a defensive back and kick return specialist.

Jones led Otterbein University in tackles for loss with 13, including four pass sacks, this season. He finished second among teammates with 66 tackles. The junior also had two interceptions and six pass break ups.

Players are nominated by schools in November and December for the All-Region team, and are then considered for the All-America teams.
