Watch Ohio State's 2019 Football Captains Call Their Families to Share the News

K.J. Hill shares the big news.

Ohio State named its seven captains of the 2019 Buckeye football team on Monday afternoon following a player vote.

J.K. Dobbins, Chase Young, K.J. Hill, C.J. Saunders and Jonathon Cooper were named team captains for the first time, with Jordan Fuller and Tuf Borland returning as captains for the second-straight season.

The players join an elite group, and they were eager to share the news with their families.

Warning: it's about to get dusty in here.

First, we have Dobbins, who called his shot back in high school.

Hill's announcement brought his mom to tears at her desk. 

Saunders' journey was quite a bit different than the rest. He arrived in Columbus just under five years ago as a walk-on defensive back. Now he's a scholarship wide receiver and a team captain.

Young's mother heard the news already, so Larry Johnson had to get a little creative and have some fun with his call.

The football season is nearly upon us as the Buckeyes take on Florida Atlantic in Ohio Stadium in less than two weeks.
