BATON ROUGE, La. -- Former LSU punter Donnie Jones has
decided he had a storybook career with the Tigers.
Jones has written a book recounting his time with the team
titled "Nine Seconds To A Championship."
Jones, a Baton Rouge native, was drafted in the seventh round of
the 2004 NFL draft by the Seattle Seahawks after capping his LSU
career in January.
Jones will long be remembered for delivering the punt that ended
LSU's 21-14 win over Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl, a victory gave the
Tigers the Bowl Championship Series title, the school's first
national football title in 45 years.
"Nine Seconds To A Championship" recaps Jones' five years with
the Tigers, a span that saw him play for coaches Gerry DiNardo and
Nick Saban, while also being a part of four bowl teams, two SEC
Championship squads as well as the 2003 BCS title.
