MAX MEADOWS, Va. – Nobody is going to mistake Trojan kicker Adam Jones for a quarterback. Not the way he clumsily danced out of a makeshift pocket Friday night, and certainly not after throwing a pass that looked like a Thanksgiving turkey taking flight to avoid the butcher’s knife.
But Jones was heady in the waning minutes of John Battle’s Group A, Division 2 VHSL quarterfinal against Fort Chiswell, and what looked to be a failed PAT kick turned into a pass – albeit an ugly one – that kept the improbable turnaround season for the Trojans rolling in the most improbable of ways.
