Tonight on the FOX19 10 O'Clock News, Tricia Macke Wxix sits down with Adam "Pacman" Jones.
Tricia talked with Jones about his rough upbringing, legal problems and his second chance with the Bengals.
Adam "Pacman" Jones has a tough life growing up. Dad
wasn't in the picture so his mom and grandma raised him.
Jones grew up in the inner city of Bankhead, Boat Rock.
His father was killed after a robbery. It happened in front of their apartment
when Jones was at a young age.
Jones remembers hearing the shots fire outside of their
Boat Rock apartment.
"I didn't actually get to see when he got shot, but I did
get to see him lying down, I seen when they taped off everything. And growing
up I carried a lot of that anger with me, as a youth growing up," said Jones.
Even after those hard time, Jones strives to be a role
model for his community. There have even been rumors that Jones no longer wants
to go by the nickname "Pacman."
Jones was nicknamed Pacman by his mother at a young age.
"I used to go to the bottle when I was hungry and go
‘pa-pa-pa-pa' so she came up with the idea Pacman cause she used to play it all
the time also. But, no, my teammates all call me Pac, but as far as media wise,
I prefer Adam, because the Pac still carries on the baggage," said Jones.
Jones says he still gets a rush when he sees his fans
cheering for him the stadium.
"It's amazing, from where I come from it gives me chills
right now to know that like, wow, you know, that's my goal right now to teach
younger kids it's so much bigger than me, no matter where you come from or what
the situation was, or however you want to say it, it's way bigger," said Jones.
Jones said the coolest thing that has happened to him,
besides getting drafted, was when he won a million dollars in Las Vegas within
two and half hours.
Jones says he was "playing craps. Besides getting
drafted, getting drafted was the coolest, I take that back. Getting drafted the
first defensive player being picked, being out of the inner city, Boat Rock. It
Jones has come a long way from his rough childhood in
Boat Rock. Macke asks what he would tell kids. "I would make sure I tell, just
love life, respect others, walk around with a smile," said Jones.
