Packers’ Aaron Jones Helps Pack the Don and Donates $10K
El Paso's Aaron Jones is at it again - giving back to his hometown in one of the coolest ways possible.
The Green Bay Packers running back helped pack the Don Haskins Center for a huge high school basketball showdown between the No. 18 Chapin Huskies and the Parkland Matadors.
El Paso Independent School District and Ysleta Independent School District came together to split the facility cost to be able to play the regional quarterfinal matchup inside the legendary Don Haskins Center.
Both schools were calling on all fans to show their support of the local talent.
And Aaron Jones, a Burges High School grad, answered the call.
But that's not even close to the coolest thing the Prince of El Paso did for the game.
Check this out:
You read that right - Jones announced his charity, A&A All The Way Foundation, would donate $10,000 to the winner of the basketball game.
And that winner is -- the Chapin Huskies.
The 18th-ranked team in the state beat Parkland 56-53 for their third straight trip to the 5A Sweet 16.
And it turns out the fans, and El Paso community, showed out.
THIS is the kind of thing that makes an NFL star like Jones so proud to be an El Pasoan. Remember, he called on El Paso to do better after a string of teen gun violence.
Chapin will now play Wyatt in the Sweet 16 and is the only El Paso area team left in the high school basketball state tournament.
Now it's time for all of El Paso to get behind the Huskies.
Win or lose, they'll now have an extra $10,000 thanks to Aaron Jones.
