Yesterday was the annual spring game at Ohio State, which means a lot of former players were back in Columbus. Included among them was Ryan Shazier.
Shazier, a linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers, is recovering from a frightening spinal injury he suffered last season. Shazier’s football career is still in doubt, but he’s back on his feet and walking, which is more important.
During the game, Shazier met an important member of the Buckeye football family: Urban Meyer’s grandson Troy.
Troy is the son of Meyer’s daughter Nicki. Nicki Meyer Dennis posted the heartwarming photo of the moment Troy and Shazier met.
Check it out.
Little Troy Dennis won’t remember the spring game or meeting Shazier. That’s a really cool photo for him to look at when he gets older though.
Shazier has been an inspirational figure since his injury. Even if he never plays another snap, he’s had a huge impact on so many people.
