Tracy High seniors Nate Jones and Jacob Alvarado are among the top athletes on the Tri-City Athletic League’s all-league list for 2014.

Jones, the Bulldogs’ fullback, is the TCAL’s Offensive Player of the year. Jones led the league in rushing yards, 1,440, and scored 22 touchdowns over 11 games, including three playoff games and the Sac-Joaquin Section Division I championship game. He didn’t record any yards in the Bulldogs’ first game of the season against Freedom High of Oakley, when he sprained his ankle, and he missed the next two games because of the injury.

Jones’ previous football awards include the 2013 Peter B. Kyne Award, which recognizes Tracy High’s most valuable player, and the 2013 San Joaquin Athletic Association MVP award.

Alvarado is the TCAL’s Utility Player of the Year. Alvarado played running back and defensive back and was a punt returner. He was third in the Sac-Joaquin Section in interceptions with 10 for the year and logged substantial gains for the Bulldogs in rushing, receiving, kickoff returns, punt returns and interception returns.

Alvarado was an all-SJAA first-team defensive back as a junior.
