Video: Demario McCall, Rashod Berry lose black stripes

The Ohio State Buckeyes have a cool tradition during training camp where freshman must earn their ways on to the team and until that happens, they are recognized by a black stripe on their helmets. Saturday morning, Demario McCall and Rashod Berry became the latest members of the team.

McCall, a four-star running back in the 2016 class, and Berry, a three-star tight end of the 2015 class who switched to defensive end in the spring after he took a redshirt last year, had their stripes removed on the team’s final day of training camp. Curtis Samuel removed McCall’s and Jalyn Holmes removed Berry’s.

This is certainly a special way to end the training camp just two weeks before the start of the 2016 college football season. Both of them could certainly make a big impact for the Buckeyes into the future.

Ohio State opens the 2016 season on Sept. 3 against Bowling Green.
