Former Ohio State and current Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Cardale Jones has already dipped his toe into the community service pool, opening up the Plus Two University training center in Columbus. In order to christen his new facility, Jones will be hosting a celebrity softball game featuring Ohio State legends from the past.

"Our target audience isn’t the freak athletes," Jones said. "Our target audience is pretty much the kids that’s struggling maybe with bullying or struggling with confidence."

The QB's charity game will take place this saturday at Ohio State's softball field, and will feature teams captained by Jones himself as well as fellow former Buckeye star and New Orleans Saints quarterback JT Barrett.

Teams will include former OSU standouts James Laurinaitis, Boom Herron, and Beanie Wells.

For Ohio State to a national championship and his effort to give back to the community, Jones has solidified himself as Buckeye royalty. And his star will only keep on shining.
