While talking to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Jones said, “I did have a very impressive conversation with the most important one in this whole proposition, that’s his mother. It was really easy for me to see where Odell got a lot of his pulses. She was very impressive. You can see where he gets a lot of the things he has.”
