Aaron Jones Flashes El Paso Strong Sign after 1st TD of Season
The Packers got their first dub Sunday afternoon (9/13), and El Paso's Aaron Jones got his first TD. Jones scored his lone touchdown late in the 4th quarter to help the Green Bay Packers defeat Minnesota, 43-34, in the first game of the 2020 season for both teams.
After reaching the end zone on a 5-yard run with a little over 3 minutes left in the game, the former UTEP Miner and Burgess High alum flashed the numbers 9, 1, and 5 with his hands and flexed his bicep in homage to his hometown.
Jones, who has flashed both El Paso’s area code and the UTEP picks up sign in celebration after scoring TD's since his 2017 rookie season, added the bicep flex signifying ‘El Paso Strong’ after the August 3 Walmart mass shooting.
AA initially scored in the first quarter, but the six was wiped off the scoreboard after an official review showed his body touch the ground before the ball made it into the end zone. After that, it was pretty much all Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams. But if Jones has a season anything close to last years, we’re going to be seeing him flash 915 Strong a lot.
