The Ohio State football team is doing all it can to help out its dearest fans in need. Jacob Jarvis, a 10-year-old that suffers from muscular dystrophy, is as big of a Buckeye fan as anyone.

With Jacob in mind, members of the Ohio State football department chipped in to donate $10,000 to support the Coach To Cure MD program, which aims to one day eliminate Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The genetic disorder currently has no cure.

Urban Meyer, Joshua Perry and Ezekiel Elliott presented Jacob with the donation in a touching locker room moment.

Joe Boozell has been a college basketball writer for NCAA.com since 2015. His work has also appeared in Bleacher Report, FOXSports.com and NBA.com. Joe’s claim to fame since joining NCAA.com: he’s predicted the correct national championship game twice… and picked the wrong winner both times. Growing up, Joe squared off against both Anthony Davis and Frank Kaminsky in the Chicagoland basketball scene. You can imagine how that went.
