Keep paying it forward, Mr. Decker, as I have no doubt you will. You are a perfect example of what an Ohio State football player is supposed to be - great on the field, and greater still off of it.

I think the old ball coach would be very, very proud of Taylor Decker's words - not because he is an excellent football player, but because of the type of young man he has demonstrated himself to be with those words. Combine this with the story of Jeff Heureman (and the entire team really), Coach Myer and Jacob Jarvis and you have an example why we must celebrate this team with all we have - because as a football team they are rare, and as men they are special. Yes, Coach Hayes is smiling on his boys.
