Memories of Fork Union

Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones spent the fall of 2011 at Fork Union Military Academy in Fluvanna County.
Doesn't sound like he'll be doing promotions for the school soon.
Jones grew up in Cleveland with so little supervision that he often roamed the streets and slept at friends’ houses many nights each week. The difference in structure, jarring for anyone, hit him like a plunge in a cold tub. He fought. Hard.
“This is terrible,” Jones recalled thinking. “Like, we don’t have cheerleaders? I was heartbroken. We couldn’t have our phones, no electronics.”
We'll find out Monday night how well we learned his lessons from Fork Union.
