I just heard about it on the radio and it seems like an interesting event... and I didn't see any mention of it on here yet.

Former Ohio State players will playing a flag football game in Granville to raise money for melanoma research. The event is happening on July 31st (next Thursday) and gates open at 6pm.

It is being put on by a company called sKeven which sells t-shirts to benefit skin cancer research.

It looks like a few players from the 2002 National Championship team will be playing... Maurice Clarett, Tyler Everett, Mike Doss, Scottie McMullen, Matt Wilhelm, Cie Grant and Beanie Wells are all listed to be playing.

You can actually partcipate in the game yourself for $500 or you can just buy tickets to watch for $10 a peice.

It also states that there will be a silent auction and local dermatologists on site to offer free skin exams.

Seems like a fun event for a good cause!!

I clicked because of the headline (why would former Buckeyes be fighting?), stayed for the story.

Very cool story.

Thanks for sharing, J2F.

Ha...

I was hoping that would draw some people in.

I also want to add that those players are just the ones listed on the little flyer on sKeven's page. I'm not sure if more players will be playing or not. And the event is specifically to benefit The James cancer hospital.

Also, according to this Newark Advocate article, Anthony Rothman and Dimitrious Stanley will be calling the game... So that should be pretty entertaining.

Not a problem... I'm actually hoping that some of the staff will catch on to this thread and post something about it on the front page. Seems like a fun event for a good cause.

Second that - the event sounds like a win-win all-around.

That would be pretty awesome to play in.  Being able to say you played against all these players would be sweet.
