Denzel Ward Pays for Largest Expense, Chase Young Reaches Out to Young Fan

During these tough times, we all need something to smile about. While there may not any football going on in Columbus any time soon, some former Buckeyes have been reaching out to fans, lifting spirits along the way. 

Chris Spielman has been at the forefront of raising money for COVID-19 relief since March, a trend that Cleveland Browns cornerback Denzel Ward continued today. Ward and his foundation, Make Them Know Your Name, teamed up to take care of some of his fellow Ohioans that have struggled during the COVID-19 crisis. 

Ward not only paid for each individual's largest expense but also called each person to listen to their story and deliver the good news. 

Ward's personal touch brings another dimension to the story, giving them a memory they'll never forget. 

After being drafted No. 2 overall to the Washington Redskins, Chase Young undoubtedly gained a few fans. None of them, however, were more excited than this little boy. 

By the next day, Young had a friend named Chase. 

The No. 2 overall pick even hopes to bring "lil' Chase" to a game this season. 

Even during these trying times, Buckeyes have both been able to find a personal way to connect with their fans and neighbors, giving them a memory for the rest of their lives.
