( 4UMF NEWS ) OSU Quarterback Silences Twitter Troll:
Too often athletes don’t speak out on issues, losing both the platform and experience they have to bring a valuable voice to the table, whatever the cause may be. Unfortunately, even more often, when athletes do weigh in, a collective groan tells them to “just focus on sports.”
Well, Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones wasn’t about to let the latter happen, and excellently shut down a Twitter user who told him to just “worry about getting us fans another championship,” rather than speak on the issue of racial politics.
To begin, Jones posted a series of tweets staring a debate on #BlackLivesMatter.

The user is now off of Twitter. Do not tell Jones — or any other athlete, for that matter — to just stick to sports.
