Jadakis Bonds was a shining star in a cloudy sky this past football season for Hampton University.
The senior wide receiver made first team All-Colonial Athletic Association on the strength of 49 receptions for 855 yards and 10 touchdowns.
In their first CAA season, the Pirates finished 4-7 overall and 1-7 in the conference, while ending the campaign with five straight losses.
On the plus side, HU battled CAA champion William & Mary to the final horn before falling 20-14.
The 6-foot-4 Bonds finished his brilliant four-year career at Hampton with 146 catches for 2,191 yards and 28 TDs.
He has been selected to compete in the Feb. 2 East-West Shrine game in Las Vegas. It is among the most prestigious postseason all-star games. The NFL Network will provide TV coverage.
