Randy Jones, a native of Winston-Salem, N.C., produced record-setting performances in multiple sports at Duke before earning international prestige as a member of four United States Olympic teams. On the gridiron, Jones amassed 2,835 all-purpose yards as a running back and return specialist from 1987-90, was a member of Duke’s ACC championship squad in 1989, led the Atlantic Coast Conference and ranked seventh nationally in kickoff return average (28.25) in 1990 and finished his career as the school’s all-time leader in kickoff returns for touchdowns (3). Competing as a sprinter with Duke’s track and field program, Jones broke the school’s 36-year old record in the indoor 60-meter dash in 1992 with a time of 6.74, eclipsing the previous standard of 6.84 set by fellow Duke Athletics Hall of Famer Dave Sime in 1956. In addition, Jones finished his career with the second-fastest outdoor 100-meter time (10.38) in Blue Devil history. He then earned a roster spot on four consecutive U.S. Olympic bobsled teams in 1994, 1998, 2002 and 2006, garnering a silver medal in the four-man event in Salt Lake City in 2002.
