When times are tough, strong leadership is needed more than ever, and Ryan Day answered the call.
Following the Big Ten's announcement that the fall sports season is postponed until the spring, Day met with his team and delivered one hell of an inspirational message.
Here's Day's message to the team, transcribed:
You work your entire life as a player, you work your entire life as a coach, to be part of a team like this. The way that you guys go out there every day, and your energy and your effort is unbelievably rare. On behalf of the staff, I want to thank every guy in here for everything you’ve done since March. You’ve done everything in here. The sacrifices that have been made to get to right here are unbelievable, and you should be proud of that. I still believe in my heart that we can play games in the spring, if this team can play together. You’re gonna go through a range of emotions right now. I just promise you stick together. I want you to know that we all fought for you really, really hard. We’re gonna continue to fight for you and do everything we can, everything we can. Because there’s a lot of people in here with a bright future. I know it’s a tough time. I love you guys with all my heart. Fight on 3.
Ohio State now turns its attention toward preparing for a spring season – and Day is leading the way.
