(11-12-22) I At Ohio State football is a very BIG thing, winning is important…but today in the Buckeye’s 56-14 win over Indiana it was all overshadowed by a 5th Year Senior who has had 4 ACL surgeries during his career …Kamryn Babb.
Today he made his first catch as a Buckeye and it was a touchdown, that moment overshadowed everything else today in Columbus.
He has shown leadership despite his injuries on and off the field. He came out of St. Louis, Missouri as a highly recruited athlete,,,despite everything he has made an impact of a lot of people.
He is respected by his teammates –
He is respected by his coaches…
He has gained the respect of all of the Buckeye program.
His bio on the Ohio State website says it all…
