ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- Lobo quarterback Sheriron Jones grew up playing multiple sports.
In addition to football, skateboarding has become another of his passions.
He said the New Mexico skateboarding community immediately welcomed him.
“It made me feel more at home because I knew if I had a skate family, then I can definitely have a real family here,” Jones said. “All of my friends were skateboarding and we would have a good time, you know, you fall, you get back up kind a like with football, get tackled, you get back up."
Jones is now on a mission to bring students to a new place to skate.
“Right now, my project is basically having the first skate park on a campus,” he said.
Jones said he’s been in contact with UNM officials. He’s been discussing places the skate park could be built.
Skating for Jones isn’t just a hobby, he said it makes him feel like he’s back home in California.
“I really enjoy it because at the end of the day, it shows how much heart you have,” He said. “You go up, you do big tricks, you land big, you go hard."
