Meyer awards two walk-on linebackers scholarships

How did you spend your Friday morning?

Chances are, it wasn’t spent making two peoples’ dreams come true. If it was, good for you. But that’s certainly what Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer did, as he awarded two walk-on linebackers scholarships.

Joe Burger and Craig Fada have spent their entire Buckeye careers as walk-ons, but now they’ll have full rides. Below is a photo of them making the arrangement official:

Coach Meyer was very happy to be able to give Burger and Fada scholarships.

Congrats to both of these guys.
