For as awful a disease as Duchenne muscular dystrophy is, Jacob Jarvis is an even better human being.

The longtime honorary member of Ohio State's football team was on hand after Saturday's Buckeye victory over Western Michigan. Coaches across the country have donned patches to raise awareness about the disease, but Ohio State's staff went a step further.

They were able to raise $10,000 to fight the disease. Even better: Jacob Jarvis, who was an honorary captain for the game, was on hand to collect.
