Buckeyes donate $10k to fan with muscular dystrophy

As if we didn’t already have enough reasons to love the Ohio State Buckeyes, now we have another. Head coach Urban Meyer and his players have rallied around superfan Jacob Jarvis, who suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Per Big Ten Network, the team donated $10,000 to DMD research following last weekend’s win over Western Michigan. Jacob also received the game ball from the Buckeyes’ 38-12 victory. Meyer, running back Ezekiel Elliott, linebacker Joshua Perry and many others paid the visit to Jacob, and it was all caught on video.


It’s great to see the team take some time away from football to do work for a fantastic cause, and it’s a true testament to just how selfless these players are both on and off the field.
