On Saturday, college football coaches nationwide wore patches recognizing those battling Duchenne muscular dystrophy. 

Ohio State took the effort one step further. Following the team's win over Western Michigan, Buckeye head coach Urban Meyer, linebacker Joshua Perry and running back Ezekiel Elliott surprised a young fan with a $10,000 donation to DMD and the game ball from the win. 

According to BTN, the young boy, Jacob Jarvis, has a special relationship with the Ohio State team. 

Jacob Jarvis, the young Ohio State fan who followed the team on its national championship run last season, suffers from the disease, the most common fatal genetic disorder diagnosed during childhood.
