Ohio State Buckeyes are winners off the field, too

Monday night was one of the best nights in Ohio State football history, as the team knocked off Oregon 42-20 to win the first College Football Playoff.

For the players and coaches, it was a night they surely will never forget.

The same goes for 15-year-old Jacob Jarvis.

According to ESPN.com’s Brett Edgerton, Jarvis is a big-time Ohio State fan who suffers from Duchenne muscular dystrophy, which leads to muscle degeneration and has no cure. It also comes with a life expectancy of around 25 years.

But that’s not important right now.

What is important is that Jarvis, by invitation from the Buckeyes, got to celebrate with the team both on the field and in the locker room.
