Maine Sports Hall of Fame to honor longtime UMaine athletics employee

The Maine Sports Hall of Fame has announced that it will honor longtime University of Maine athletics employee Steve Jones at its annual ceremony on June 3 at the Collins Center for the Arts in Orono.

The Hall will bestow its Lifetime Achievement Award on “Jonesy,” who has been the equipment manager for the Black Bears for more than three decades.

During his career at UMaine, Jones has served more than 25,000 student-athletes and established a reputation as a professional of the highest quality, a comrade to coaches and staff members in the athletics department, and a friend to all.

“What a great honor for Jonesy, and one that is very much deserved. He epitomizes what a true Black Bear is and he certainly is one of the reasons that UMaine Athletics is successful,” UMaine softball coach Mike Coutts said in a statement.
