Endicott, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The Jones brothers have not forgotten where they came from.

The boys visited their alma mater to reach out to students.

Arthur and Jon stopped by UE this morning to talk with the students.

Arthur is a Lineman for the Baltimore Ravens and Jon is the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion.

They wanted the kids to know that being a professional athlete does not come easy.

Both say they can remember sitting on those same bleachers.

They also stressed that whether kids want to be a professional athlete or lawyer, it takes hard work, dedication and passion.

Arthur Jones talked about his favorite part of the visit, saying,"To put a smile on these kids faces and tell them the importance of education." Jones said he also wanted to stress "how important it is to not put things off to the last minute and to just be who they are."

The youngest Jones brother, Syracuse football player, Chandler Jones joined his older brothers to answer questions.

The Jones brothers all say the best part of coming back to Broome County is visiting their family.
