Christ-Centered Education for Life
Faculty Spotlight: Mr.Jones

This week’s Teacher Spotlight features our Athletic Director and Alumni Coordinator, Mr. Anthony Jones. He is lovingly referred to as “Coach” since he also serves as our Varsity Boys’ Basketball Coach. Coach Jones is a tremendous asset to Lutheran East. He has brought his knowledge and success to our boys’ basketball program. It is such a blessing to be able to offer prospective students the opportunity to be in a school where our athletes will be recognized by colleges. In addition, to the basketball program, we do have a full complement of thriving sports in our program including football, volleyball, and track. Coach Jones’ dedication in both time and energy are a tremendous daily blessing to this organization.

When Coach Jones isn’t coaching, he is keeping in touch with our Lutheran East Alumni through our newsletter and through personal meetings. Coach Jones is making every effort to also meet with Lutheran East Alumni who can contribute financially to our school so that God’s ministry will continue to thrive. Not enough can be said about how great it is to have him on staff!

Let’s see what Coach has to share:

L.E.: What is your favorite Bible verse or quote?

Coach: Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

L.E.: Tell us about your family.

Coach: My immediate family consists of my one-year-old son, A.J.; my fiance, Stephanie; my mother, Linda; my father, Ralph; my twin sister, Ashley; my two older sisters, Phaedra and Francine; and my only brother Chris. In my extended family I have two nieces, Safi and Isabella, and two nephews, Christopher and Lathan. I have the best family in the world!

L.E.: Tell us about where you went to college.

Coach: I attended the Ohio State University where I received my Bachelors Degree in Sports Management in 2010. I truly consider Ohio State to be the best University in America.

L.E. Tell us about your hobbies or sports you are interested in

Coach: My hobbies consist of playing basketball and playing NBA 2k on Xbox1.

L.E.: If you had to choose Ohio State or Michigan, which would it be?

L.E.: Why did you decide to become an educator?

Coach: It was always a goal of mine to become an Athletic Director and Head Basketball Coach. I'm extremely blessed to be offered this opportunity.

L.E. : Anything else you would like us to know about you?

Coach: If I'm not at work or coaching basketball, I'm playing with my one-year-old son, A.J. I consider myself to be the best looking individual at Lutheran East. I love the Fast and Furious series. Ohio State Football is my favorite thing to watch on television. I'm also a huge Los Angeles Lakers fans.

It can be said that Coach Jones greatest accomplishment this year is to get us a new mascot. Our new falcon is amazing!! We do, though, sincerely appreciate Coach Jones and his expertise. We wish him many blessings throughout the year.
