LIO Ring of Honor: Jonathan Wallace


In the sports blogosphere it's a rare sight to see a story about someone who seems to be a all-around good guy. Well here's one for you: Georgetown's Jonathan Wallace. The Junior stamped his name in the history books last Sunday when he hit the game-tying three pointer against UNC that eventually put them into overtime. An Alabama native, Wallace grep up on an 80-acre cattle farm. Wallace's three years in DC have proven that you can take the kid out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the kid.

Wallace's take on transportation in the nation's capitol?

"Taxis are dangerous," the Georgetown point guard said. "You don't know who's driving. I like driving my own car, or I like riding with my mom or my dad or aunt, somebody I know. If I don't know you, I'm not going to get in the car with you."

His dream scenario for the future?
"I want cows," Wallace said with a smile. "I want cows and land one day."

Finally, his idea of a wild night?
"It's a lot of things I don't do that the other guys tend to do a lot, as far as going to the mall and so forth on the subway," Wallace said. "I usually stay in the room and wait for them to come back because I'm not too comfortable with that stuff. It's not me."


Perhaps Georgetown coach John Thompson III summed Wallace up the best:
"You win with people like Jon Wallace," coach John Thompson III said. "You look at him, he's not the fastest person in the world, he's not the strongest person, never will be. But he has character, he has guts, and he's a good man. He's willed his way through so many situations and is someone who has gotten the most of his God-given ability.


All in all, Wallace seems like a good, normal college student. He's not a primadonna, there's no pretension about him, and he really seems to know who he is deep down inside. In this time where college athletes show up on campus expecting to be waited on hand and foot, Wallace, the former walk-on is a breath of fresh air. He's clearly comfortable with himself, and doesn't pretend to be anything else. He set goals, and he accomplished them. He's been student body president, a national merit finalist, and a Red Cross volunteer. Finally we've got a person, and a team worth rooting for.

Go Hoyas!
