Ohio State fan names newborn baby after Ezekiel Elliott

What’s one way to show your fandom and dedication to your favorite team and athlete? Naming your child after them usually does the trick.

That’s exactly what one Ohio State fan did when their newborn son was born on Friday. Fan Carlos Barron showed off his son on Twitter and shouted out running back Ezekiel Elliott, telling him to welcome his new son Ezekiel into the world.

I’m pretty sure this little Buckeye fan is going to be sporting number 15 jerseys before he can even hold a football.
