HSFA Interviews Perry Jones, the Washington Football Team’s Week 2 High School Coach of the Week

In just two short years as Glen Allen (Virginia) High School’s head football coach, Perry Jones is making a huge impact on his players. After a 2-0 start to the season, Coach Jones was named the Washington Football Team’s High School Coach of the Week for Week 2 of the spring 2021 high school football season.

Perry credits his high school football coach, Richard Morgan at Oscar Smith High in Chesapeake, Virginia with getting him interested in being a high school football coach. As a running back at the University of Virginia, Jones’ head coach was former NFL head coach Al Groh.

In his interview below with High School Football America’s Jeff Fisher, Jones talks about winning the Coach of the Week Award, being a head coach before he was 30 years old, and building culture inside the Glen Allen football program.

The High School Coach of the Week program is an NFL initiative that recognizes area high school football coaches who demonstrate hard work and dedication to their football programs, protect the health and safety of their players, and make a difference in their communities. Each honoree will receive a $2,000 donation from the Washington Football Charitable Foundation to their football program.
