Legendary Ohio State running back Eddie George will be back in Ohio Stadium on Saturday to serve as the honorary captain for this year's spring game, Ohio State announced Friday.
The 1995 winner of the Heisman Trophy, George is considered to be among Ohio State's all-time greats. Following his career with the Buckeyes, George went on to play nine seasons in the NFL and has found success off the field, as well, as an actor, entrepreneur and speaker.
“The team is thrilled to have Eddie George back in Ohio Stadium with them,” Ohio State head coach Ryan Day said Friday in a statement. “This coaching staff is thrilled, as well. He is a tremendous representative of this school and this program and we are certainly honored that he’ll be able to take part in this spring game weekend.”
Saturday's spring game is set to begin at noon and will be televised on BTN.
