Former Buckeye AJ Hawk Served As Ordained Minister For Ohio State Staffer's Wedding

Earlier today, we showed you a photo of Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer photobombing a bride during her wedding this past weekend. It turns out that wasn't the only Buckeye-related story to come from the happy couple's nuptials.

The bride, Amy Halpin, is actually a staff member for the football program - she's a program coordinator for special events. As such, the wedding was attended by a number of people associated with OSU, like Meyer and his wife Shelley. But here's the kicker - former Buckeye great AJ Hawk, who now plays for the Cincinnati Bengals, was the wedding officiant. Hawk became an ordained minister five years ago and married another set of friends last year too.

Perhaps Hawk has found his second career, once football is over. Congrats to the newlyweds.
