Ohio State wide receiver Curtis Samuel starred as Forrest Gump in a hilarious new video released today.

In yesterday's 77-10, season-opening win over Bowling Green, Ohio State junior wide receiver Curtis Samuel hauled in nine passes for 177 yards and two touchdowns. He showcased his blazing speed on one 79-yard score.

In a tremendous video clip released today by the OSU program, Samuel stars as Forrest Gump. His head is superimposed onto Gump's body for the famous "Run, Forrest, Run," scene from the hit movie.

That's great work by the OSU social media team. Expect to hear a lot more from Samuel this season. This kid looks like the next big Ohio State star.
