University of Notre Dame senior wide receiver TJ Jones was named 2013 Notre Dame Monogram Club Most Valuable Player tonight at the 93rd Notre Dame Football Awards Ceremony (ECHOES).

Jones was selected in a vote by members of the Irish football team and was one of 16 players honored at the show sponsored by the Notre Dame Club of St. Joseph Valley.

Jones is the seventh wide out in school history to surpass 1,000 yards receiving in a single season. His 65 catches, 1,042 yards and nine touchdown catches rank ninth, eighth and tied for ninth, respectively, in single-season school history. Jones has recorded 100-yard receiving games on five different occasions in 2013 - tied for the fourth-most in school history.
