[HALL OF FAME] Longtime Los Angeles Times soccer writer Grahame L. Jones will be honored as the recipient of the 2012 Colin Jose Media Award at the 2012 National Soccer Hall of Fame Induction ceremony presented by Eurosport on Wednesday before the USA-Brazil game at FedExField in Landover, Md.

Jones worked at the Los Angeles Times for more than 40 years before retiring in September 2011.

Jones' "On Soccer" column was a fixture for 38 years. His soccer writing included coverage of the North American Soccer League, Major League Soccer, the U.S. national team and 12 men's or women's FIFA World Cups, as well as four Olympic Games, two European Championships and one Copa America.

He was also the editor of Soccer Corner and Soccer International magazines and a columnist for Soccer America magazine and ESPN.

Jones is the seventh recipient of the Colin Jose Media Award after Jerry Trecker (Sportswriter, 2004), Seamus Malin (Broadcaster, 2005), George Tiedemann (Photographer, 2007), Ike Kuhns (Sportswriter, 2008), Alex Yannis (Sportswriter, 2009) and Paul Gardner (Sportswriter, 2010).
