Ohio State fans are justifiably still giddy about their team’s College Football Playoff National Championship victory two weeks ago. One fan decided to show her support with a huge OSU-themed cake, and in the process, honored deceased Buckeye lineman Kosta Karageorge.
Karageorge, a walk-on, went missing in late November, and eventually turned up dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He had suffered a number of sports-related concussions (he also wrestled at OSU) before his disappearance. He wore No. 53 during his time with the program.
Here’s the photo of the baked tribute, from a fan named Arlena McCoy:

Pretty cool, and it’s good that the Buckeye faithful are keeping Kostageorge’s memory alive, even in atypical fashion.
