In their fifth round draft pick Jamarco Jones, the Seattle Seahawks added another player with a championship pedigree. With Ohio State from 2014 to 2017 left tackle Jamarco Jones collected two Big Ten titles and a national championship. However, courtesy of Jones’s mother Urica, we also know Jamarco’s experience bringing rings goes even farther back:
And that adorable photo of Jones as a child isn’t the only old school picture Urica has posted. Here’s an image of young Jamarco, who is now 6-foot-5 but appears to have already been about 5-foot-9 in Pop Warner football when he played both sides of the line, about to eclipse the opponents’ entire offense:
God DAMN that’s a big boy.
Urica Jones, who as a fellow Buckeyes mom is good friends with Twitter celebrity Annie Apple—mother of New York Giants cornerback Eli Apple—turns out to be a pretty fantastic follow herself.

But even if Jamarco’s championship provenance didn’t actually come from the four-time NBA Finals winner, Urica Jones may have had an inkling her son was born to be a Seahawk as early as Super Bowl XLVIII. Here she is posting scalding memes on February 2, 2014:
But sooo right.
