If he has the tenacity of his Dad, this kid is gonna be alright and will be a Buckeye to be proud of if he steps into Urban's World. I got moved up to Varsity my senior year in High School and remember multiple times in practice being steamrolled by his dad LMAO ... but each time he'd come back, make sure the scrawny freshman laid out in the dirt was ok LOL
Dude was a Simon-like gamer, I will say that ...
