Having grown up with pride as a Lexington Minuteman it makes me shudder to see this:

CADE STOVER • 2019 OLB/DE • MANSFIELD, OHIO (LEXINGTON) 

While technically Lexington may be part of the "Mansfield Metropolitan Statistical Area", Lexington High School is in Lexington, not in Mansfield and, while I have not lived there for many years,  I don't think anyone from Lexington would be necessarily happy about that association.  This is the only athlete that I know from Lexington to be recruited by the Ohio State football program and  there is a lot of affinity for tOSU in Lexington - the marching band does a script Lex and the fight song is to the tune of Buckeye Battle Cry - as evidenced by Cade's enthusiasm (I think he will commit at the Spring game), so this is, I think, a pretty big deal for the community.

For the purple and gold and the honor we hold for Lexington.  Go Big Lex!

Dude, he set a record for passing yardage in a Super Bowl game.  He engineered a 91 yard game tying drive and a 75 yard game winning drive.  Back to back.  I think you might be using an alternative definition of blowing it.

This is all such sweet music to a New England sports fan's ears.  10 major sports championships since 2000.  10!

Well, this is fun. I suppose you could say it is describing the noun uniform, but I would contend that It is an adverb because it is qualifying the adjective "white".  OSU wears other white (adj) uniforms (n), but these are the cocaine (adv) white (adj) uniforms (n).
