Video: Ohio State Fan With Muscular Dystrophy Scores TD During Spring Game

Ohio State's spring game gave us a moment to remember.

Each spring, college football teams from around the country partake in a tune-up game to get themselves ready for the upcoming season.

Saturday afternoon, the Ohio State Buckeyes took the field for their spring game -- and a very special guest was with them. No, we're not talking about the Buckeye alums like Ezekial Elliott and Cardlae Jones who came back to pay homage to the team.

We're talking about Jacob Jarvis.

Jacob is a young man with muscular dystrophy who built a special bond with the Buckeyes in 2013.

Jarvis took the field with time expiring in the fourth quarter of Ohio State's spring game and received a snap from quarterback J.T. Barrett -- and he took it to the house.

A heart-warming scene on the field as Buckeyes dove left and right trying to tackle Jarvis, who escaped the onslaught for a touchdown.

What a classy move by the Ohio State organization to get this young man involved. Jarvis has been a loyal Buckeyes fan since he was ten years old, and his special bond with the team has grown stronger every year.
