With a plethora of football skills and support behind him, Coatesville native Peter Jones has committed to the University of Notre Dame where he plans to continue to hone his talent on the field, writes Joey Piatt for The Philadelphia Inquirer.

The Malvern Prep junior has football in his family, with his older brother, Kevin, playing as a senior offensive linesman at the University of Maine. As an offensive lineman himself, Jones has worked with Coach Dave Gueriera at Malvern and learned tips from his brother to prepare himself for the school season.

“I definitely had an immediate love for the sport, and that’s kind of what drew me to choosing Malvern for my high school,” said Jones. “As Coach Gueriera kept telling me, Malvern would be the best place for me to make [playing at the next level] happen.”

He had received offers from countless schools including Penn State, Michigan, and Notre Dame — where he made his commitment this past August.

“What ensued was something I couldn’t explain, and that is he worked harder,” said Gueriera. “He dug deeper. It actually fueled his fire even more than before he got his first offer. Our human nature is to take our foot off the gas. … Pete went the other way. He just wants to be great.”
