A walk-on A-back who emerged as a surprise in preseason camp... played briefly vs. Miami (Nov. 20), Duke (Oct. 4), Mississippi State (Sept. 20) and in the season opener vs. Jacksonville State (Aug. 28)... emerged as a possible part of the rotation at A-back because of his work ethic and how quickly he picked up the offense... a former wide receiver... made a 14-yard reception in the April 19 T-Day Game.
Got into five games as a sophomore... caught one pass for a gain of 15 yards... his 15-yard reception came in the Samford game (Sept. 8) from quarterback Josh Nesbitt.
Saw action as a true freshman in Georgia Tech wins vs. Samford and Duke.
All-county and all-region selection by the Marietta Daily Journal, which named him its wide receiver of the year... led Cobb County in receptions and yards with 47 catches for 750 yards... named to the Marietta Daily Journal's Scholar-Athlete team... two-year letterman at Pope High School... also lettered four years in golf.
Full name is Jonathan Michael Malone... born April 19, 1988... parents are Michael and Carolyn Malone... parents and grandfathers attended Georgia Tech... majoring in management.
