USC RB Ronald Jones honors late Joe McKnight, wears no. 4

In one of the more gut-wrenching stories of the year, former USC star and Louisiana high school legend Joe Mcknight was shot and killed in a road rage incident in Louisiana. To honor his memory, the USC Trojans will be wearing a decal with his number on their helmets for the Rose Bowl gamae against Penn State. Star sophomore running back Ronald Jones is taking that a step further.

This is sure to be an emotional reminderĀ for the Trojan faithful, as McKnight was one of the most beloved players at USCĀ in recent memory. One can only hope Jones has a fantastic game to honor the memory of a man who impacted the lives of so many.

Rest in Peace, Joe.
