Gameday Feature: College Kids & Dropouts: Josh Bone

Every parent worries about their kids getting into trouble. Josh Bone's parents don't sweat it much.

The Brentwood, Tenn., native is founding member of a productive extra-curricular activity--CKDO College Kids and Dropouts--an online magazine that informs its readers about the latest in sneakers, fashion, life and culture.

"CKDO is something some friends and I started when we were about 16 or so," Bone said. "We just wanted to do something different. We don't want people to drop out of school. But we want people to know there are different routes you can take to be successful--it's not by getting into the wrong stuff. There are positive ways to get there, too."
