Second chance: FIU’s Anthony Jones reflective after shooting
MIAMI (AP) — The scar snakes down the right side of Anthony Jones' neck, serving as a constant reminder of something the FIU running back doesn't exactly remember nor will he ever forget.
Had the bullet gone an inch or two in a different direction, he could have died.
Instead, he's about to go play for FIU in the Bahamas Bowl next week.
