"Inside of the left bicep of Paul Jones' hulking 6-foot-4 frame is a tattoo, etched in tall cursive letters, that reads 'Fearless.'

The path that Jones has chosen in his football career is one that appears to embody that characteristic ... at least on the surface. The safe move would have been to stay where he was at this time last year -- at Penn State, playing in the Big Ten in front of home crowds of more than 100,000.

Instead, on a mid-August morning, Jones leaves practice in a stadium that seats only 3,000 in the uniform of a team that plays on the NCAA Division I-AA level. For a variety of reasons, he now finds himself at Robert Morris, led there by an overwhelming belief that, above all else, he is a quarterback capable of starting and excelling in college football."
