There are people who love the Ohio State Buckeyes, and there are people who LOVE the Ohio State Buckeyes. This particular fan falls into the latter category, as he carved a Halloween pumpkin in the shape of running back Ezekiel Elliott’s signature “Zeke Leap” and posted a picture on Twitter.
It just goes to show just how much of a lasting effect Elliott’s style of play has on fans. His constantly leaping and hurdling over defenders is becoming recognized in most households to the point where he’s even getting Jack-o-Lanterns done in its honor! How many other college football players can say that pumpkins have been carved in tribute to them?
Needless to say, with Elliott already having 1,130 rush yards with 13 touchdowns on the season, Ohio State could be in line for another national championship if he keeps playing at the level he has been for the rest of the season.
